1  The sun is gone
From hill and lawn
Till morning dawn.
No star shines bright,
No moon gives light,
'Tis gloomy night.

2  The road is drear,
And far and near
No sounds I hear;
But onward I
Fare cheerily,
For love is nigh.

3  And anxiously
Her lover she
Awaits to see,
And where they meet,
With kisses sweet
They fondly greet.
