WATCH beside me while I’m sleeping,

Let my spirit feel Thy spell!

Flash upon me, ere I waken,

All the charms I love so well!

Let me see the lustrous tresses

Where my senses captive dwell;

Let me see my own heart quiver

In the chains it loves so well!

Bend on me those eyes revealing

Love more deep than lips can tell!

Fold my spirit in Thy Spirit

In the trance I love so well.
