The words of love then spoken ;

The eyes that shone,

Now dimm'd and gone,
The cheerful hearts now broken !
Thus, in the stilly night,

Ere Slumber's chain has bound me, Sad Memory brings the light

of other days around me.

II.

When I remember all

The friends, so link'd together,
I've seen around me fall,
Like leaves in wintry weather ;

I feel like one,

Who treads alone
Some banquet-hall deserted,

Whose lights are fled,

Whose garland's dead, And all but he departed! Thus, in the stilly night,

Ere Slumber's chain has bound me, Sad Memory brings the light

of other days around me.

HARK! THE VESPER HYMN IS STEALING.

Russian Air.

I.
Hark! the vesper hymn is stealing,

O’er the waters soft and clear;
Nearer yet and nearer pealing,

Jubilate, Amen.
Farther now, now farther stealing
Soft it fades

upon
Jubilate, Amen.

the ear,

II.

Now, like moonlight waves retreating

To the shore, it dies along;
Now, like angry surges meeting,
Breaks the mingled tide of song.

Jubilate, Amen.
Hush! again, like waves, retreating
To the shore, it dies along,

Jubilate, Amen.
