Pearsall's setting of Dryden's words from King Arthur, published as his Op. 20.
Lyrics: John Dryden (slightly adapted)

Two children of this aged stream are we,
And we our sea-green locks have combed for ye.
Come, bathe with us an hour or two;
Unarmed come, for we are so.
Come, come with us, and share
The pleasures that the floods prepare.
We'll beat the waters 'til they bound,
And circle round.
