Francis Ireland was the pen name of Francis Hutcheson, son of the Scottish philosopher of the same name, under which he published his compositions, principally glees and catches.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Awake, my fair, hark how from yonder grove
The birds sing forth their roundelays of love.
For thee, new flow'rs in garlands I will twine;
Awake, and be mine own true Valentine.
