Daylight is fading,
Fast from the lea,
Evening is shading
Earth, air and sea;
Luna's bright daughters sparkling above,
Play in the waters,
Wake, dearest love.

Why art thou sleeping,
Why slumber on?
Moments are creeping,
I am alone.
Soft zephyrs playing
Thro' the green grove,
Seem to be saying
Wake, dearest love.

Say, dost thou hear me?
Bless me the while;
Hasten to cheer me
With thy sweet smile.
Patiently trying
Constant to prove,
List to my sighing,
Wake dearest love.
