Abstract

Sweetly o'er my senses stealing,
Fancied pleasures round me roll
While hope its balmy joys its joys revealing,
Sheds its influence o'er my soul!
Lightly beats lightly beats the heart that never
Felt the pangs felt the pangs that wait on love
Sadly sighs sadly sighs the breast that ever
barter'd peace its joys to prove.


Hapless mind doom'd forever to mourn
The sweet peace that can never return
The peace that can never return ,
Lightly beats lightly beats the heart that never
Felt the pangs felt the pangs that wait on love,
Sadly sighs sadly sighs the breast that ever
Barter'd peace its joys to prove,
Barter'd peace its joys to prove
Lightly beats lightly beats the heart that never
Felt the pangs felt the pangs that wait on love,
Sadly sighs the heart that ever barter'd peace its joys to prove.
