Lyrics: Horace (trans. Philip Francis and adapted)

Sweet muse, who lov'st the virgin spring,
Hither thy sunny flow'rets bring,
And let thy richest chaplet shed
Its fragrance round my Handel's head.
Now string the tuneful lyre again,
Let all thy sisters raise the strain,
And consecrate to deathless fame
My loved, my honoured Handel's name.
