Lyrics: Anacreon(trans. Greene)

Sound, O muse, the Theban jars
Sound the rage of Trojan wars;
Heroes, battles, tumults sing,
Softly slept the tender string.
Nought my rebel lyre could move
But the gentle notes of love.

Straight I tuned the chords anew;
Now the scenes of arms pursue;
Now Achilles' triumphs sing
Softly slept the slender string.
Nought my rebel lyre could move
But the gentle notes of love.

Heroes, vainly ye aspire
Love alone can raise my fire.
Conquest, I to you resign,
Cupid's joys be ever mine.

Jacob Cubitt Pring
(1770 - 1799)

Sound, sound, O muse
