Oh list to my song, my sweet, dark eyed 
   Oh list to thy lover today! 
For I’ve come from afar, to woo thee
   Though, erstwhile, you sent me away. 

But I heard thy sighs in my troubled 
   And methought they were sighs of pain; 
So I’ve come, I’ve come on the wings of 
    of my love, 
   To offer my true heart again. 

Oh say that my heart has not hoped in 
   Oh tell me the sweet dream was true! 
And lift those dark lashes, oh sweet love 
    of mine,
   And hide not thine eyes from my view.

Oh love, those dear eyes are telling the 
   That thy lips refuse to repeat! 
Come thou, to my heart; thou art mine, 
    thou art mine, 
   Till time and eternity meet!
