Lyrics

The rapture dwelling
Within my breast,
And fondly telling Its fears to rest;
The rapture dwelling
Within my breast,
And fondly telling Its fears to rest;
Comes o'er me weaving Its charmed chain;
No vestige leaving of sorrow's stain,
No vestige leaving of sorrow's stain,
of sorrow's of sorrow's stain.
Oh! the rapture dwelling
Within my breast,
And fondly telling Its fears to rest,
No vestige leaving of sorrow's stain of sorrow's stain.

Ah! The rapture dwelling
Within my breast,
And fondly telling Its fears to rest;
The rapture dwelling
Within my breast,
And fondly telling its fears to rest;
come o'er me weaving Its charmed chain,
No vestige leaving of sorrow's stain
No vestige leaving sorrow's stain of sorrow's stain.
Ah! the rapture dwelling
Within my breast
And fondly telling Its fears to rest
No vestige leaving of sorrow's stain of sorrow's stain.
