Lyrics: William Kendall

O thou, whose smiles divine have power
To calm the swelling tide of woe,
And where the clouds of sorrow lour,
To bid the gales of pleasure blow;
A lover's trembling hand essays
For thee, sweet maid, to wake the lyre,
For thee, the song of love to raise,
To breathe the strains of soft desire.
Bright source of Love's immortal flame,
Approve the measures as they flow;
Thy praise can give eternal fame,
Thy smile eternal bliss bestow.
