Music Manuscript Book Index

O had my Love ne'er smil'd on me
I ne'er had known such Anguish
But think how false how cruel she
To bid me cease to languish
To bid me hope her hand to gain
Breathe on a flame half perish'd
And then with cold and fix'd disdain
To kill the hope she cherish'd.

Not worse his fate who on a wreck
That drove as winds did blow it
Silent had left the shatter'd deck
To find a grave below it:
Then land was cried no more resign'd
He glow'd with joy to hear it
Not worse his fate his woe to find
The wreck must sink e'er near it.
