Another made to a pleasant Tune.

I.
VVHen to Paradice the Soul is brought,
The brightd wellers all flock to it;
In the eternal rosie Groves 'tis sought;
Fair she Saints, and Virgins woo it,
Angels, Cherubins still pursue it:
Breathing Love with Charming voice,
Angels, Cherubins still pursue it;
Singing Halelujahs of Celestial joys.
II.
When fair Celia made my heart her prize,
Every sinew felt a pleasure,
Each kind look from her obliging Eyes;
Swell'd my joys beyond all measure:
Love, ah! Love is the only Treasure,
Joy and blessing of the brave and wise,
Give me love and life enough and leasure;
I'le never envy what the fool enjoys.
