Published London, 1802. Horsley was an enthusiastic early-adopter of the metronome: tempo markings are his own.
Lyrics: Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Tell me, on what holy ground
May domestic peace be found?
Halcyon daughter of the skies,
Far on fearful wings she flies,
From the pomp of scepter'd state,
From the rebel's noisy hate.

In a cottage vale she dwells,
List'ning to the sabbath bells;
While still around her steps are seen,
Spotless honour's meeker mien;
And mindful of the past employ,
Memory, bosom-spring of joy.
