score is incomplete -- pp. 2-3 wanting but all lyrics are as followed

When the dawn flames in the sky, I love you
When the birdlings wake and cry, I love you
When the swaying blades of corn
Whisper soft and brewing morn
Love to me anew is born, I love you

Dawn and dew proclaim my dream, I love you
Chant the birds one thrilling theme, I love you
All the sounds of morning meet,
Break in yearnings at your feet
Come and answer, come, my sweet, I love you
