Symphony
Hail, bright Cecilia!
Hark, hark, each tree its silence breaks
Tis Nature's voice
Soul of the world
Thou tun'st this world below, the spheres above
With that sublime celestial lay
Wondrous machine!
The airy violin
In vain the am'rous flute and soft guitar
The fife, and all the harmony of war
Let these amongst themselves contest
Hail, bright Cecilia, hail to thee!
