Dear thoughts are in my mind, and my soul soars enchanted.
As I hear the sweet lark sing in the clear air of the day;
For a tender, beaming smile to my hope has been granted,
and tomorrow she shall hear all my fond heart would say.

I shall tell her all my love all my soul's adoration
and I think she will hear me, and will not say me nay;
It is this that gives my soul all its joyous elation,
As I hear the sweet lark sing in the clear air of the day.
