O'er moor and mountain,
By stream and fountain,
O'er broad wave roaming,
Of ocean foaming,
In vain I seek for rest and peace.

In forest mazes,
Silent and lonely,
Solitude raises
The thought of thee only,
Now vainly flying,
Alas! broken-hearted,
Now vainly sighing,
Far from thee parted,
I am far from thee parted:

No more to meet thee,
No more to greet thee,
Hope flies for ever,
Mine to be never.
Till life shall cease,
Farewell to peace.
