The bright stars are gleaming above;
The moon sails along in her glory --
Arrayed in her glory;
And yet thou art sleeping, my love --
Art dreaming, my love --
Ye hear not a lover's sad story --
A true lover's story!
Oh, dream of thy lover's sad story!

How fresh and how balmy the air;
My locks the soft breeze is caressing --
So sweetly caressing;
And yet I am wild with despair --
I die with despair;
And shall I despair of thy blessing --
Or hope for thy blessing?
Oh, lend the sweet charm of thy blessing!

Awake thee, nor true heart despise;
Art risen! The spell now is broken --
The dark spell is broken;
I now catch a glimpse of thine eyes --
A gleam of bright eyes,
And throw thee a kiss as a token --
Thy true lover's token;
Oh, send me a kiss for a token!

And now I must bid thee adieu;
The curfew has told the long numbers --
Now tells the short numbers;
Oh, bid me my visit renew --
My song to renew;
Then sink to thy soft dreamy slumbers --
The sweetest of slumbers;
Oh, dream of me in thy soft slumbers!
