Hayes' setting, as a catch, of "Words underneath a Statue of a sleeping Nymph, in the Grotto at Stourton Wilts, the seat of H. Hoare, Esqr." [viz. Stourhead]
Lyrics: Alexander Pope

Nymph of the grot, these sacred springs I keep,
And to the murmur of these waters sleep.
Whoe'er thou art, ah, gently tread the cave,
And bathe in silence, or in silence lave.
