Golden sun, thy warmth display,
Spread o'er earth thy lovely ray;
Then shall plenty wave around,
Then gay Flora paint the ground.

Then shall yellow harvest smile,
Full repaying Winter's toil.
Then shall clustering grapes produce
Rosy wine's nectareous juice.

Then shall laughing nymphs and swains
Feel love's mighty joys and pains.
Lead the jolly months along,
Source of health, of mirth and song.
