In this hour of softened splendour,
When the moon, fair Queen, on high,
Bids the stars due homage render
to their Sovereign in the sky:
In this hour, O lady, hear me,
Bid me my passion prove;
With thy royal glance, ah! cheer me
While I tell all my love.
In this hour of softened splendour,
When the moon holds court on high,
Hear, oh! hear me homage render,
And give me sigh for sigh.

 

See, the gentle moon now paleth,
In the radiance of the dawn,
And in pure white robe she saileth,
All her queenly glory gone:
In this hour, O lady, hear me,
Bid me my passion prove;
With thy royal glance, ah! cheer me
While I tell all my love.
In this hour so soft and tender,
When the moon forgets to shine,
And the day breaks forth in splendour,
Say, say thou wilt be mine.
