Abstract

Adieu! 'tis love's last greeting
The parting hour is come!
And fast thy soul is fleeting
to seek it's starry home!
Yet dare I mourn when heaven
has bid thy soul be free
a fresher life has given
for all eternity!
Yet dare I mourn when heaven
has bid thy soul be free
a fresher life has given
for all eternity!

Adieu! go thou before me
to join the Seraph throng!
A secret sense comes o'er me
I tarry here not long!
Adieu! there comes a morrow
To ev'ry day of pain!
On earth we part in sorrow
to meet in bliss again!
Adieu! there comes a morrow
To ev'ry day of pain!
On earth we part in sorrow
to meet in bliss again!

Voici l'instant supreme
L'instant de nos a dieux!
O toi! seul bien que j'aime
sans mois retourne aux cieux!
La morte est une amie
Qui rend la liberte
Au Ciel recois la vie
Et pour l'eternitie!
La morte est une amie
Qui rend la liberte
Au Ciel recois la vie
Et pour l'eternitie!

Adieu! tu vas matendre
Bientot je dois partir
Mon coeur fidele tendre
Te garde un souvenir.
Adieu! jussqu'a l'aurore
Du jour en qui j'ai foi.
Du jour qui doit encore
Me reunir a toi.
Adieu! jussqu'a l'aurore
Du jour en qui j'ai foi.
Du jour qui doit encore
Me reunir a toi.
