Lyrics: William Collier

So many tears of misery have failed to move your heart,
That, wearied with your tyranny, despairing I depart.

Yet think, at last relenting, lest pity come too late,
When, Love, the wrongs resenting, no more your smiles await.

But, Oh! Regard with lenity this proud presumptuous strain,
While frantic by your cruelty, I dare to brave your train.

Oh! Let thy heart consenting once more again be mine.
And I, with tears repenting, for ever will be thine.
