1  Flow to the west, O silent tide,
The sunset land is there;
Its golden shores are tinged with light,
In radiance past compare.
And when thy waters reach the west,
Lay down my burthened heart to rest.

2  Flow to the west, O silent tide,
The land of flowers is there;
And in their midst my darling moves
Among their fragrance rare.
And when thy waters reach her side,
Oh, speak of me, thou silent tide.

3  Flow to the west, O silent tide,
The land of love is there;
And on its shores my darling dwells,
Among the angels fair.
And when thy waters reach her home,
Oh, speak of me until I come.
