Where dwelleth she,
Whose name shall be
The lodestar of thy longing?
Whose gentle light
Draws day and night,
My pilgrim thoughts a-thronging.
Fa la la la la la la!

Here dwelleth she,
The lodestar of my longing;
To whose dear shrine,
In heart of mine,
My pilgrim thoughts are thronging.
Fa la la la la la la!
