 Naomi and Ruth, op. 27 
CHORUS
 And it came to pass, in the days when the Judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And acertain man of Bethlehem in Judah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons. And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife, Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion—Ephrathites of Bethlehem in Judah. And they came into the country of Moaband continued there. And Elimelech, Naomi’s husband, died, and she was left, and her two sons. And they took them wives of the women of Moab, the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth, and they dwelled there about ten years. And Mahlon and Chilion died also, both of them, and the woman was left without her two sons and her husband.Then she arose, with her daughters-in-law, that she might return from the country of Moab: for she had heard in the country of Moab how the Lord had visited his people in giving them bread. Wherefore shewent forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her: and they went on theway to return into the land of Judah. And Naomi said unto her two daughters-in-law:
NAOMI
“Go, return each to her mother’s house: the Lord deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead,and with me. The Lord grant you that ye may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband.”
CHORUS
 And she kissed them, and they lifted up their voice, and wept. And they said unto her: “Surely we will return with thee unto thy people.” And Naomi said:
NAOMI
“Turn again, my daughters: why will ye go with me? Are there yet any more sons in my womb—that they may be your husbands? Turn again my daughters, go your way, for I am too old to have a husband. If I should say, I have hope, if I should have a husband also tonight, and should also bear sons. Would  ye tarry for them till they were grown? Would ye stay for them from having husbands? Nay, mydaughters! For it grieveth me much, for your sakes, that the hand of the Lord has gone out against me.”
CHORUS
 And they lifted up their voices and wept again. And Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth clave untoher. And she said:
NAOMI
“Behold, thy sister-in-law has gone back unto her people and unto her Gods. Return thou after thy sister-in-law.”
CHORUS
 And Ruth said:
 
“Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee, for whither thou goest I will go. And where thou lodgest I will lodge: Thy people shall be my people and thy God. Where thou diest I will die, and there will I be buried. The Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.”

Ode
Ô Fontaine Bellerie, Belle fontaine chérie De nos Nymphes, quand ton eau Les cache au creux de ta source, Fuyantes le Satyreau,Qui les pourchasse à la course Jusqu'au bord de ton ruisseau,Tu es la Nymphe éternelle De ma terre paternelle : Pource en ce pré verdelet Vois ton Poète qui t'orne D'un petit chevreau de lait, A qui l'une et l'autre corneSortent du front nouvelet. L'Été je dors ou reposeSur ton herbe, où je compose,Caché sous tes saules verts, Je ne sais quoi, qui ta gloire Enverra par l'univers,Commandant à la MémoireQue tu vives par mes vers. L'ardeur de la CaniculeTon vert rivage ne brûle,Tellement qu'en toutes partsTon ombre est épaisse et drue Aux pasteurs venant des parcs, Aux bœufs las de la charrue, Et au bestial épars. Iô ! tu seras sans cesse Des fontaines la princesse,Moi célébrant le conduit  Du rocher percé, qui darde Avec un enroué bruit  L'eau de ta source jasardeQui trépillante se suit.
Chanson
Quand ce beau Printemps je vois, J'aperçois Raeunir la terre et l'onde
 
Et me semble que le jour, Et l'Amour,Comme enfants naissent au monde. Le jour qui plus beau se fait, Nous refait  Plus belle et verte la terre, Et Amour armé de traits Et d'attraits, Dans nos coeurs nous fait la guerre. Il répand de toutes parts Feux et dards Et dompte sous sa puissance Hommes, bestes et oiseaux, Et les eaux Lui rendent obeïssance.Vénus avec son enfant Triomphant, Au haut de son coche assise, Laisse ses cygnes voler  Parmi l'air  Pour aller voir son Anchise.Quelque part que ses beaux yeux Par les cieuxTournent leurs lumières belles, L'air qui se montre serein Est tout plein D'amoureuses étincelles. Puis en descendant à basSous ses pasCroissent mille fleurs écloses; Les beaux lis et les oeilletsVermeilletsY naissent entre les roses. Je sens en ce mois si beau Le flambeau D'Amour qui m'échauffe l'âme,Y voyant de tous côtés Les beautésQu'il emprunte de ma Dame.Quand je vois tant de couleurs Et de fleursQui émaillent un rivage, Je pense voir le beau teint Qui est peint Si vermeil en son visae.
