THE moon o'er the hills to-night!
A song where the spring-leaves blow,
The setting of Youth's delight.

Pale lamps of our learning's height!
What is it shames you so?
The moon o'er the hills to-night!

O, the wine is sparkling bright
With its subtle, sunshine glow —
The setting of Youth's delight.

The halls are ivory white,
The river mirrors below,
The moon o'er the hills to-night.

Our hearts were fashioned aright
For the comradeship we know,
The setting of Youth's delight.

Come! We shall be happy in spite
That all shall fleetingly go —
The moon o'er the hills to-night,
The setting of Youth's delight!
