Abstract

Go thou and dream o'er that joy in thy slumber
Moments so sweet again ne'er shalt thou number
Moments so sweet again, Ne'er shalt thou number
Of pain's bitter draught, the flavour ne'er dies
But pleasure scarce touches the lips e'er it flies
Go thou and dream o'er that joy in thy slumber
Moments so sweet again ne'er shalt thou number.

That moon which hung o'er our parting so splendid
Often may shine again bright as she then did
Often may shine again, bright as she then did
Oh! can'st thou say, will the light she saw burn
In those happy eyes, at our meeting return!
Go thou and dream o'er that joy in thy slumber,
Moments so sweet again ne'er shalt thou number.
