O Venus! Beauty of the Skies,
To whom a thousand Temples rise;
Gaily false in gentle Smiles,
Full of Love-perplexing Wiles;
O Goddess! from my Heart remove
The wasting Cares and Pains of Love;
The wasting Cares and Pains of Love.

Thou once didst leave Almighty Jove,
And all the Golden Roofs above:
The Car thy wanton Sparrows drew,
Hov'ring in Air they lightly flew;
As to my Bow'r they wing'd their way,
I saw their quiv'ring Pinions play,
I saw their quiv'ring Pinions play.

Celestial Visitant, once more
Thy needful Presence I implore!
In Pity, come and ease my Grief,
Bring my distemper'd Soul Relief;
Favour thy Suppliant's hidden Fires,
And give me all my Heart desires,
And give me all my Heart desires.
