Abstract

1. Come to this heart so lonely,

Come cheer me with thy smile,

Thou has the power only,

Each sorrow to beguile.

Yes thou hast power only

Each sorrow to beguile.

When thou art far I languish,

Nor taste the sweets of peace,

Oh! come and sooth my anguish,

And bid each sorrow cease;

And bid each sorrow cease.

Come to this heart so lonely,

Come cheer me with thy smile,

Thou has the power only,

Each sorrow to beguile;

Thou hast the power only,

Each sorrow to beguile

2. Oh! calm ye heav'n in slumbers,

My sorrow for awhile,

And send my best beloved,

Each sorrow to beguile,

And send my best beloved,

Each sorrow to beguile.

But if my prayrs are fruitless,

At least let her return,

To bathe with tears of pity,

The dust within my urn;

The dust within my urn.

Oh! calm ye heav'n in slumber,

My sorrow for a while,

And send my best belov'd

Each sorrow to beguile;

And send my best belov'd,

Each sorrow to beguile.
