GIve o'er my Fidelius, my Fidelius give o'er,
Since Menaelus your Father dislikes our Amour,
In silence let us our misfortunes deplore.
Not that his air Flocks or green Pastures so wide,

But that duty forbids thee to make me thy Bride.
And if for our duty we suffer well here,
Heav'n shall for such Lovers choice Blessings pre∣pare,
Honey-moon shall eternally wait on us there.
