210. Hymn to Pan
SING his praises that doth keep 
  Our flocks from harm. 
Pan, the father of our sheep; 
  And arm in arm 
Tread we softly in a round,         5
Whilst the hollow neighbouring ground 
Fills the music with her sound. 
Pan, O great god Pan, to thee 
  Thus do we sing! 
Thou who keep'st us chaste and free  10
  As the young spring: 
Ever be thy honour spoke 
From that place the morn is broke 
To that place day doth unyoke!
