Abstract

Must I leave thee, must I leave thee, must I leave thee Paradise!
Thus leave thee, leave thee, native soil
These happy, happy walks, these walks and shades
Yet must I leave thee, must I leave thee, must I leave thee Paradise!

O flow'rs that never will in other climate grow,
Who now shall rear ye to the Sun,
From thee, from thee, how shall I part, how shall I part
Yet must I leave thee, must I leave thee, must I leave thee Paradise! must leave thee Paradise!
