All ye woods, and trees and bowers,
All you vertues and ye powers
That inhabit in the lakes,
In the pleasant springs or brakes,
 Move your feet
 To our sound,
 Whilst we greet
 All this ground,
With his honour and his name
That defends our flocks from blame.

He is great, and he is just,
He is ever good, and must
Thus be honour'd: Daffodillies,
Roses, Pinks, and loved Lillies,
 Let us fling,
 Whilst we sing,
 Ever holy,
 Ever holy,
Ever honoured ever young,
Thus great Pan is ever sung.
