From "A First Book of Glees, Canons, etc. Compos'd by J.C.Pring Mus. Bac. Oxon, Organist of St Botolph Aldersgate"
Lyrics: Anon

Rise, pensive muse, and sweep the sounding string,
While of stern death's impartial reign I sing;
While for a friend we tune the mournful lay,
Who's paid the final debt we all must pay.
O much-loved shade, may'st thou for ever rest,
In the celestial mansions of the blest.
