A song from Arne's opera Cymon, recast as a glee.

Lyrics: David Garrick

Yet awhile, sweet sleep, deceive me.
Fold me in thy downy arms;
Let not care awake to grieve me,
Lull it with thy potent charms.

I, a turtle doomed to stray,
Quitting young the parent's nest,
Find each bird a bird of prey;
Sorrow knows not where to rest.
