The Harper’s Song

Here is thy home to be,1
Aileen a-Roon ?2
Or wilt thou go with me,3
Aileen a-Roon ?4
Far on the mountain side,5
Wilt thou become my bride ?6
Or wilt thou here abide,7
Aileen a-Roon ?8
Think of the happy hours,9
Aileen a-Roon,10
Wait us among the flowers,11
Aileen a-Roon :12
None whom you here may see,13
Ever can love like me14
None else would die for thee,15
Aileen a-Roon !16
Think of my breaking heart,17
Aileen a-Roon !18
Oh are we thus to part,19
Aileen a-Roon ?20
Here then amid my foes,21
Come I my life to close22
Welcome the grave’s repose,23
Aileen a-Roon !24
Blow never fell on me,25
Aileen a-Roon,26
But was repaid with three,27
Aileen a-Roon :28
Yet on thy kin my arm29
Ne’er shall alight in harm30
Fatal but strong the charm,31
Aileen a-Roon !32
Oh think how fond our love,33
Aileen a-Roon !34
All other loves above,35
Aileen a-Roon !36
Ne’er did the tribes of air37
Number a truer pair38
Oh must I now despair,39
Aileen a-Roon !40
