Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Sweet muse inspire thy suppliant bard,
Heroic ardour to record.
In vain the fervent prayer I move.
Hark! Every echo whispers love;
I'll raise the theme to acts renowned.
Ah, no! 'Tis love, no other sound.
Farewell then, patriot, hero, king,
My muse of nought but love can sing.
