Sweet i wft ray's Iady ar
As down the blushing check i lloXti.,
Fond Love must BUtcly mingle there
As morning dews o'crchargo the rose.
When I.ovc firtt sought on earth to find
A mate, his joys and griefs to share,
Sweet Pity flew, with raptured mind,
And bade him fix his mansion Uriic.
Yliis union dear beguiles each pain,
And soothes the soft endearing hour;
It bids the sorrowing heart cbmplaiu
No more, of Love's capricious power.
Thcn Pit-, hail I endearing charm!
Sweet L'ovo and you that bosom Wrm,
"Whence Hows tho tender briftthing sigh,
And tear, tint gilds Maria's eye.

Come heavenly nymph of birtli divine;

And clrccf tho soul of grief, is thine.
"When sorrows press tho sinking heart,
Forsaken, lost, without relief,
Vhat soothing sweets thy smiles impart!
The drop thai sweetens bitter gricl.
Bull leading OnWard, thou dost say
"Soon shall wo reach tho promisd joy;
"A few more steps pursue your way,
'And Uis is your's whhoUt alloy."
Gentle Hope! thou dear deceiver,
Paitakcr of our cy'ry care;
From misery our mild reliever,
Kind saver from lost wild despair.
So whtn tha golden age was Med, .
Tho charmer peace from earth was drlv rt,
And joy was lost then, in its stead,
Hone flatt'ring hope to man was glv'n.
