With fragrant flowers we strew the way,
And make this our chief holy day,
For though this clime were blest of yore,
Yet was it never proud before:
O gracious Queen, of second Troy,
Accept of our unfeigned joy.

Now th'air is sweeter than sweet balm,
And satyrs dance about the palm:
Now earth with verdure newly dight,
Gives perfect signs of her delight.
O gracious Queen…

Now birds record new harmony,
And trees do whistle melody:
Now every thing that Nature breeds
Doth clad itself in pleasant weeds.
O gracious Queen…
