Lyrics: John Clarke-Whitfeld

Low in yon vale, where winds the silver stream,
And lilies lurk beneath the beechen grove,
I fondly meditate by Luna's beam
And mourn the sorrows of a hopeless love.

The joys of life to me are now no more,
For faithless Delia's to another gone;
Come gentle death, thy aid I now implore
To ease a heart that's doomed to grief alone.
