"A favourite glee for three voices

Sung with universal applause at Vauxhall. Compos'd by Mr Hook."
Lyrics: William Upton

Oh, how sweetly Delia sings!
List'ning angels leave the skies,
Hov'ring on celestial wings,
Wond'ring whence such strains arise.
Softly, softly, lovely maid,
Sing less sweet; in time beware.
Though the gods may court your aid,
'Tis too much for man to bear.
