Haste, haste to the wedding ye friends and ye neighbors
These lovers their bliss no longer delay.
Forget all your sorrows
Your cares & your labours
And let ev'ry heart beat with rapture today.
Ye vot'ries all
Attend to my call
Come revel in pleasures which never can cloy.
Come see
Rural felicity
Which Love and Innocence ever enjoy.

Let envy, let hate, let pride & Ambition
Still crowd to and beat at the breast of the great.
To such wretched passions
We'll give no admittance,
But leave them alone to the great ones in state.
We boast of no wealth
But contentment & health.
In love & in friendship our moments employ
Come see
Rural felicity
Which Love and Innocence ever enjoy.

With reason and taste of each heart stirring pleasure
With reason we drink of the full flowing bowl.
We are jocund & gay
But all within measure
For fatal excess will enslave the free soul.
Haste then to the bidding
Of this happy wedding
No cares shall intrude our bliss to annoy.
Come see
Rural felicity
Which Love & Innocence ever enjoy.
