Great Apollo, strike the Lyre
Language: English 
Great Apollo, strike the Lyre
Fill the raptur'd soul with fire,
Let the festive song go round,
Let this night with joy be crown'd.

Hark, what numbers soft and clear,
steal upon the ravish'd ear,
sure no mortal sweeps the strings,
listen, 'tis Apollo sings.
