Echo by music's spell,
Come from thy lonely cell,
Zephyr is sleeping,
Flowers are weeping,
Silence her vigil is keeping,
Silence her vigil is keeping.

Come Echo catch my song,
Waft the light theme along,
Oft have I taught thee,
Oft have I sought thee,
Follow'd but never have caught thee.
Follow'd but never have caught thee.

Sweet Echo come to me,
Melody calls to thee,
Hear my lute sighing,
Catch music flying,
Save it one moment from dying.
Save it &c.
