Abstract

O'er the far blue mountain,
O'er the white sea foam,
Come thou long parted one,
Back to thy home.
When the bright fire shineth,
Sad looks thy place;
While the true heart pineth,
Missing thy face.
O'er the far blue mountain,
O'er the white sea foam,
Come thou long parted one,
Come to thy home.
Ah!
Ah!
Music is sorrowful
Since thou art gone,
Sisters are mourning thee,
Come to thine own.
Hark! how lone voices call
Back to thy rest,
Come to thy Fathers hall,
Thy Mothers breast.
O'er the far blue mountain,
O'er the white sea foam,
Come thou long parted one,
Come to thy home.
Ah!
Ah!
