Lyrics: Anon

Tho' our fate is to be poor,
Pride, not plenty, shuns the door.
Let us join the choral song
And trip amid the rustic throng.
Hither, hither, sweet sincerity,
Banished cities, live with me.

The healthy labour we sustain,
With nature's blooms repays the pain;
And while the fertile valleys ring
This is our carol thro' the spring.
Hither, hither, sweet sincerity,
Join the jocund, gay and free.
