1  The hills in morning's light are glowing,
The lambs are bleating in the fold,
My love, my lamb, I must be going,
Oh! might I thee once more behold!

2  In vain thy curtained window eyeing,
I watch my rising sun to see,
No glance, no voice to mine replying,
She sleeps, perchance she dreams of me.
