Lyrics: William Hayley

Hail hallow'd vault, whose darksome caverns hold
A frame, thogh mortal, of no common mould;
A heart scarce sullied with a human flaw.
Which shunned no duty and transgressed no law;
In joy still guarded, in distress serene,
Through life a model of the golden mean;
Which friendship only led him to transgress,
Whose heavenly spirit sanctifies excess.
