VI.—Felix, Felix Ter Quaterque !

Shout and sing, ye merry voices1
Of the mountain-forest free !2
What, but late, were jarring noises3
Now as music are to me !4
Earth in bridal bloom rejoices,5
Heaven benignly bends to see !6
He, beloved of her his choice is,7
Blest of all the boys is he !8
Blest of all the world of boys is9
He that’s telling this to thee !10
Shout and sing, ye merry voices !—11
Fill the forest with your glee !12
