Samuel Webbe's most well-known glee, written in 1787.

Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Glorious Apollo from on high beheld us
Wand'ring to find a temple for his praise;
Sent Polyhymnia hither to shield us
While we ourselves such a structure might raise.
Thus then combining, hearts and hands joining,
Sing we in harmony Apollo's praise.

Here every gen'rous sentiment awaking,
Music inspiring unity and joy.
Each social pleasure, giving and partaking,
Glee and good humour our hours employ.
Thus then combining, hearts and hands joining,
Sing we in harmony Apollo's praise.

Samuel Webbe
(1740 - 1816)
