Composed by Andrew Cusworth
Text by William Wordsworth
[For Concanenda]

lyrics

Earth has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
  
A sight so touching in its majesty:

This City now doth, like a garment, wear

The beauty of the morning; silent, bare,
  
Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie
  
Open unto the fields, and to the sky;

All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.

Never did sun more beautifully steep
  
In his first splendour, valley, rock, or hill;

Ne'er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep!
  
The river glideth at his own sweet will:

Dear God! the very houses seem asleep;
  
And all that mighty heart is lying still!
