Lyrics: Peter Pindar (John Wolcot)

Lone minstrel of the moonlight hour,
That charm'st the silent list'ning plain,
An hapless pilgrim treads thy bow'r,
To hear thy solitary strain.
How soothing is the song of woe
To me, whom love hath doom'd to pine;
For 'mid those sounds that plaintive flow,
I hear my sorrows mix with thine.
