Stevens composed this glee in 1790 and submitted it (unsuccessfully) for the Catch Club prize medals for that year.

Lyrics: Anon, possibly William Shakespeare

Crabbed age and youth cannot live together;
Youth is full of pleasure, age is full of care.
Youth like summer morn, age like winter bare,
Age, I abhor thee, youth I adore thee,
O my love is young;
Age, I do defy thee, O sweet shepherd hie thee,
For methinks thou stayest too long.
