Of Peace with bonds of harmonious love….

Come, ye Powers who dwell above
Unforgetting, our witnesses be

Of Peace with bonds of harmonious love —
The Peace which Cypris has wrought for me

Alleluia! Io Paean!
Leap in joy – hurrah! hurrah!
‘Tis victory….

There the holy chorus ever gladdens,
There the beat of stamping feet,
As our winsome fillies, lovely maidens,

Dance…

Like the Bacchae’s revels, hair a-streaming.
Leda’s child, diving and mild,
Leads the holy dance, her fair face beaming…
