Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

How sweet in the woodlands, with fleet hounds and horn,
To waken shrill Echo and taste the fresh morn;
But hard is the chase my fond heart must pursue,
For Daphne, fair Daphne, is lost to my view.

Assist me, chaste Dian, the nymph to regain,
More wild than the roebuck and wing'd with disdain.
In pity o'ertake her, who wounds as she flies;
Tho' Daphne pursued, 'tis Myrtillo that dies.
