From the recording Samson at Home

<p>We play an instrumental version of this aria from John Walsh's prints, in which a Philistine woman encourages all to celebrate the festival in honor of Dagon.</p>

Lyrics

<p>Then free from sorrow, free from thrall,&nbsp;</p>
<p>All blithe and gay, with sports and play,&nbsp;</p>
<p>We&rsquo;ll celebrate his festival.&nbsp;</p>
