Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Hail hallowed fane, amidst whose mould'ring shrines
Her vigils musing, melancholy keeps;
Upon her arm her harrow'd cheeks reclines,
And o'er the spoils of human grandeur weeps.
Hail awful edifice thine aisles along,
In contemplation wrapt, O let me stray;
And stealing from the idle busy throng,
Serenely meditate the moral lay.
What pleasing sadness fills my thoughtful breast,
Whene'er my steps these vaulted mansions trace;.
Where in their silent tombs forever rest
The honour'd ashes of the British race.

Garret Wesley, 1st Earl of Mornington
(1735 - 1781)

Hail hallowed fane
