Lyrics: James Ward

Go, ye soft notes, and gently wake the fair,
Who now dissolv'd in easy slumbers lies;
While wakeful thoughts, and love's perplexing care,
Permit no rest to dwell oin Cleon's eyes.

Now, while the day's forgot, and calm her breast,
Try all your charms the cruel maid to move;
Now that her pride and her disdain's at rest,
Possess her ears, and win her heart to love.
