Rise, my Joy, sweet mirth attend
Language: English 
Rise my joy sweet mirth attend,
I'm resolv'd to be thy friend.
Sneaking Phoebus hides his head,
He's with Thetis gone to bed,
Tho' he will not on me shine,
Still there's brightness in the wine.
From Bacchus I'll such lustre borrow,
My Face shall be a sun tomorrow.
