Hutcheson, son of the Scottish philosopher of the same name, was an amateur composer who published this and other works under the pseudonym of Francis Ireland.

Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

To love and wine your voices raise,
Let joyful rapture tune your lays.
Each gloomy vapour hence retire;
Hail sparkling wine and gay desire.

To mighty Bacchus, fair and young,
Let the full goblet ever flow,
Let Cupid's praise employ each tongue,
With his soft flames each bosom glow.

'Tis wine inspires us, 'tis love that fires us,
To Bacchus and Cupid our homage is due.
When Cupid's soft transports with pleasure oppress us,
Gay Bacchus alone can our spirits renew.

Francis Hutcheson
(c.1722 - 1773)

To love and wine
