As now affections tribute - tear.
Tells o'er thy holy hallowed day.
god and blest angels only know
How thy sad fate affected me.
God and blest angels see the woe.
That still my bosom rinds from me.
Three numbers and one-third a tree.
United truly will explain.

As the Seasons by Thee flee
And may never dole nor sadness
Sweep the life-path trod by Thee
