Lyrics

Oh! gentle and soft the breeze now wakes,
With breath from flow'rets stealing,
While over the wave its sweet voice breaks,
Like music and joy revealing;
Yet night is lonely when thou'rt away,
Bringing no joy to me;
Ah! Though brightly moonbeams round me play,
In tears I pine, I pine for thee,
Though brightly the moonbeams may round me play,
In tears I pine, I pine for thee,
In tears now pining,
In tears I pine, I pine in tears for thee, for thee, for thee.

There is not a sound but murmuring waves,
Or dew o'er flow'rets falling;
Each star in the crystal water laves,
To beauty and light now calling.
Oh! let not slumber now steal away
Thy dearest smiles from me; ah!
Though sweetly beams around me play,
In tears I pine, I pine now for thee;
Though sweetly the moonbeams may round me play,
In tears I pine, I pine for thee.
