Lyrics: The words by a lady

Ye gods, give that social delight
That brightens the radiance of morn;
Bring the friends of my heart to my sight,
Let smiles their fresh beauties adorn.

In a circle of friends link'd around,
United by friendship and love,
In such circles a magic is found
To emulate blessings above.
