A glee written by Suett for use at the Ad Libitum Society, of which he was a member.

The Ad Libitum Society was a dining club (like the Beefsteak Club, with which it had members and premises in common), which maintained its own kitchen, wine cellar and cook, and where professional musicians and gentleman amateurs could meet and socialise together. Suett himself was a comedian and professional singer.

Lyrics: Richard Suett

Mighty love, resistless pow'r,
Tempt not my fond heart again.
Calm content thy blessings show'r,
Free alike from joy and pain.

Friendship come, celestial joy,
Pure as angels taste above;
Free from ev'ry base alloy,
Ev'ry pang that waits on love.

Richard Suett
(1755 - 1805)

Mighty love, resistless pow'r

(T.T.T.)
