Title: The mighty conqueror
Composer: Samuel Webbe
Original text and translations
The mighty conqueror of hearts,
His pow’r I here deny;
With all his flames, his firs and darts
I, champion-like, defy.
I’ll offer all my sacrifice
Henceforth at Bacchus’ shrine.
The merry god ne’er tells us lies;
There’s no deceit in wine.
