This glee gained a Catch Club prize medal in 1780.

Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

O thou, sweet bird, that sits on lonesome spray,
Unseen amid yon solitary grove,
Fly to my love and sing thy little lay;
For lays like thine the hardest heart can move.
Sing 'til around her soft-eyed pity play,
And one responsive sigh breathe sympathizing love,
