ACIS AND GALATEA,
SERENA T A.
THE MUSIC BY MR. HANDEL.
PART THE FIRST.
A rural profpect, diverfified with rocks, groves, and a river. Acis and Galatea feated by a fountain. Chorus of nymphs and fhepherds, diftributed about the landicape; and Polyphemus difcovered fitting upon a mountain.
Ye verdant plains, and woody mountains,
Vain are the pleasures which you yield;
Huh, you pretty warbling choir,
Awake my pains,
And kindle fierce defire :
Ceafe your fong, and take your flight;
Bring back my Acis to my fight.
Where fhall I feek the charming Fair?
Direct the way, kind genius of the mountains:
Seeks fhe the groves, or bathes in crystal fountains?
