Act IV scene iiiA
-
-
A cypress bough and a rose wreath sweetB
A wedding robe and a winding sheetB
A bridal bed and a bierC
Thine be the kisses maidD
And smiling Love's alarmsE
And thou pale youth be laidD
In the grave's cold armsE
Each in his own charmsE
Death and Hymen both are hereC
So up with scythe and torchF
And to the old church porchF
While all the bells ring clearG
And rosy rosy the bed shall bloomH
And earthy earthy heap up the tombH
-
Now tremble dimples on your cheekI
Sweet be your lips to taste and speakI
For he who kisses is nearG
For her the bride groom fairJ
In youthful power and forceK
For him the grizard bareJ
Pale knight on a pale horseK
To woo him to a corpseL
Death and Hymen both are hereC
So up with scythe and torchF
And to the old church porchF
While all the bells ring clearG
And rosy rosy the bed shall bloomH
And earthy earthy heap up the tombH
