CHARLES JEFFERYS (JEFFREYS OR JEFFRIES)
English lyricist
(1807 - 1865)

The cheat ambition, eager to espouse
  Dominion, courts it with a lying show,
    And shines in borrow'd pomp to serve a turn;
      But the match made, the farce is at an end;
        And all the hireling equipage of virtues,
          Faith, honor, justice, gratitude and friendship,
            Discharg'd at once.
      - [Ambition]

Meek and lowly, pure and holy,
  Chief among the "blessed three."
      - Charity [Charity]

Oh! if I were Queen of France, or, still better, Pope of Rome,
  I would have no fighting men abroad and no weeping maids at home;
    All the world should be at peace; or if kings must show their might,
      Why, let them who make the quarrels be the only ones to fight.
      - Jeannette and Jeannot [War]

I have heard the mavis singing
  Its live-song to the morn;
    I've seen the dew-drop clinging
      To the rose just newly born.
      - Mary of Argyle [Morning]

Come o'er the moonlit sea,
  The waves are brightly glowing.
      - The Moonlit Sea [Ocean]
