[Verse 1]
Beauteous night,
O night of love, thy splendor our hearts rejoice,
Sweeter far than radiant day, Inviting the lover’s voice,
Time will flee and ne’er return,
Our dreams of love will perish,
Yet, what matters time’s return?
Sweet memories shall cherish.
The Zephyrs soft embrace bestow their caresses,
The Zephyrs tender kiss fill our heart’s with bliss,
Kisses of love they bestow,
Kisses of love they bestow, Ah!

[Verse 2]
Beauteous night,
O night of love,
Thy splendor our hearts rejoice,
Sweeter far than radiant day,
Inviting the lover’s voice
O sweet night of love,
Ah! Rends our hearts aglow
Oh sweet night of love, sweet night of love
Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah!
