1  Maiden, listen to the lute's soft music,
Gently floating on the ev'ning breeze;
Lovely Luna's silver light is shining,
Through the quiv'ring verdure of the trees.

2  Guardian angels tending her in slumber,
Ye shall make love's image in her dreams.
Rise, and hasten thither, airy visions,
Haste, or ere the rosy morning beams.

3  Should she ask you who had sent you to her,
Softly whisp'ring, name her faithful swain,
Give the kiss which love to you entrusted,
Straight her kisses bringing me again.
