Abstract

Queen of my soul! whose star like eyes
Are all the light I seek;
Whose voice in sweetest melodies
Can love or pardon speak
Can love or pardon speak.
I bow me to thy lov'd control.
Queen of my soul! Mary! Mary!
Queen of my soul! Mary! Mary! Queen of my soul!

The mountains of thy native shore,
Are cold and dim and grey
Ah! linger 'midst their clouds no more,
Thy home is far away... thy home is far away!
Where Italy's blue waters roll
Queen of my soul! Mary! Mary!
Queen of my soul! Mary! Mary! Queen of my soul!

The perfum'd rose for thee is twin'd,
The lute awakes its strain,
Then shall the with'ring northern wind,
Steal all thy sweets in vain;
Steal all thy sweets is vain? no!
Fly beyond thy fate's control!
Queen of my soul! Mary! Mary!
Queen of my soul! Mary! Mary!
Queen of my soul!
