Chorus

Go, gen’rous, pious Youth,
Go, gen’rous, pious youth,
May all the Pow’rs above
May all the pow’rs above
Reward thy virtuous Love,
Reward thy virtuous love,
Thy Conſtancy and Truth;
Thy constancy and truth;
With Theodora’s Charms,
With Theodora’s charms,
Free from theſe dire Alarms:
Free from these dire alarms:
Or crown you with the Bleſt,
Or crown you with the Blest,
In Glory, Peace, and Reſt.
In glory, peace, and rest.
