Lyrics: William Somerville

Jolly Bacchus hear my pray'r,
Vengeance on th'ungrateful fair.
In thy smiling cordial bowl
Drown the sorrows of my soul.
Jolly Bacchus, save, O save
From the deep devouring grave
A poor despairing, dying swain.
Haste away, haste away,
Lash thy tigers, do not stay;
I'm undone if thou delay.
If I view those eyes once more,
Still shall love and still adore,
And be more wretched than before.
