Woodward was organist of Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin. This setting was printed for the author in London, 1767.
Lyrics: William Shakespeare

Where art thou, Muse, that thou forget'st so long
To speak of that which gives thee all thy might?
Spend'st thou thy fury on some heavy song,
Darkening thy power to lend base subjects light?
Return, forgetful Muse, and straight redeem
In gentle murmurs time so idly spent;
Sing to the ear that doth thy lays esteem
And gives thy pen both skill and argument.
