Let us raise a song to Pan!
To Pan our homage yield,
He the lord of every man
Who loves the wood, the field;
The shepherds far and near
Bring flocks before the shrine,
And the hunter brings the deer
For the holocaust divine.
Come, a song, a song to Pan!
To Pan our homage yield,
Ere the sun his race has run
O'er the greenwood, o'er the field,
With a voice that bids rejoice.
Come, a song, a song to Pan!

Let us raise a song to Pan!
And bring the blossoms sweet,
Now the festal day's begun,
And sylvan life's complete;
Bring golden daffodil,
Rose, queen of all among,
While the votive hymn to fill,
Hark, the wild birds' rapture song!
Come, a song, a song to Pan!
To Pan our homage yield,
Ere the sun his race has run
O'er the greenwood, o'er the field,
With a voice that bids rejoice.
Come, a song, a song to Pan!
