1  Huntsman, rest! thy chase is done,
While our slumb'rous spells assail ye,
Dream not with the rising sun,
Bugles here shall sound reveille.
Huntsman, rest! thy chase is done, Huntsman, rest!

2  Sleep! the deer is in his den,
Sleep! thy hounds are round thee lying,
Sleep, nor dream in yonder glen,
How thy gallant steed lay dying.
Huntsman, rest! thy chase is done, Huntsman, rest!

3  Huntsman, rest! thy chase is done,
Think not of the rising sun,
For at morning to assail ye,
Here no bugles sound reveille.
aHuntsman, rest! thy chase is done, Huntsman, rest!
