Lyrics: Samuel Marsh Oram

Flow on, silver stream, trilling soft on thy bed,
Enriching the sweetly diversified scene.
Where Flora empurples with flow'rs the gay mead,
And flocks round thy margin disporting are seen.

The beauties of nature and art deck thy source,
While music, sweet music, ascends from the glade.
No rocks e'er impede thy meandering course,
Or sully the maze that thy waters have made.
