Original text and translations
1 Thro' ev'ry weary stage in life,
Thro' ev'ry care, thro' ev'ry strife,
Kind Heav'n relief may send;
But nought can beguile
The heart of its toil
Like the smile of a woman friend.
2 'Tis night rain to the parched tree;
'Tis honeydew to the eager bee,
'Tis zephyr to the opening rose,
'Tis Heav'n's own light
To him whose night
Has saddened 'mid Polar snows.
3 'Tis freedom to the dungeon-bound,
'Tis coolness to the throbbing wound;
Or health to a plague-tainted air.
'Tis morning breaking,
An infant waking,
'Tis ev'ry thing that's good and fair.
