--31. pair Ellen, MO
[By E. Geibel.]
Baritone Solo.
May Ood in His mercy be good to us now,
What boots it to shrink from dying No bread to sustain us the long day through,
Ko shot to the foeman replying: But pray for rescue, and that right soon,
To come to our leaguer'd tower; Though yonder the morning be low'ring red,
There's Death in the sunset hour.
Chorus.
Lord Edward spoke; downhearted and sad,
His gallant veterans stayed ; Fair Ellen leant on a cannon near,
In tartan plaid arrayed. There's e'en a spell on the bonny face,
The lost look heavenward turning, And straightway like to a wraith she rose
Her eyne all darksome burning.
Soprano Solo.
" 0 haste ye, haste to the rampart high,
Look out i' the misty gloaming V Methought I heard in the distant far The march, the Campbells coming. Oh list to the rolling sound of drums,
The Pibroch I hear them playing, ' We come for the sake of our olden troth,' Oh list what the breezes are saying."
Baritone Solo.
Ah, Maiden, I ween thou art sore distraught,
Nought hast thou seen or heard Save deep blue sky, and yellow saiid,
And dele reeds by breezes stirred.
--4Ciioiujs.
And the sun rose to his midday height, And the sun pass'd over the heaven,
And nearer and nearer the last hour came, And sadly the farewell was given.
Fair Ellen stood with a fixed look, And brightly her eyes were aglowing.
Soprano Solo.
" The Campbells are coming, I told you true,
I hear the bugle blowing ! The l'ibroch is borne adown the wind,
The tones on the breezes quiver, 'Neath the tread of batallions that hurry along
Afar the plains do shiver."
Baritone Solo.
Ah, Maiden, we listen and listen in vain,
And fast the hours are flying, The breach is wide and the storm is nigh,
There's Honor, Honor in dying. Farewell then wife and child at home!
And the Highland lochs and the heatherl And now for the last time (iod speed the shot,
Let your swords be unsheathed together,
Chokus.
And the volley rang, and the fight was hot, And smoke hung thickly before them,
The colors droop'd, but Fair Ellen rose, And forward right boldly she bore them.
Soprano Solo.
" Oh stay, oh stay, 'tis the pipes I hear, The sound draws nearer and nearer, Ha! see, there's a rent in the mist, And the sight grows clearer and clearer."
----5'Chohcs.
And they broke on the foe like a Highland storm,
And nearer and louder becoming, Far over the mist there sounded the march,
The march, " the Campbells are coming."
Soprano Solo.
There's a shimmer of steel o'er the far-spreading plain,
From the squadrons for battle arrayed, With their plaids and gay plumes in their bonnets they come,
And England's Hag displayed.
Soprano, Baritone Chorus.
And the foemen fled, and they enter'd the gate,
And Ellen's voice rose to heaven: "We're sav'd by the bond of our olden troth,
To God praise and honor be given !
2. F tSutch Lullaby.
Wynken, Blynken and Nod, one night
Sailed off in a wooden shoe, Sailed on a river of misty light
Into a sea of dew.
Where are you going and what do you wish
The old moon asked of the three ; " "We have come to fish for the herring fish
That live in the beautiful sea. "Nets of silver and gold have we,
Said Wynken, lilynkeii and Nod.
The old moon laughed and sang a song
As they rocked in the wooden shoe, And the wind that sped ihem nil night along,
Ruffled the waves of dew.
The little stars were the herring fish,
That lived in the beautiful sea. Now cast your nets wherever you wish,
But never afeared are we. So cried the stars to the fishermen three,
Wynken, Blynken and Nod.
xVll night long their nets they threw,
For the fish in the twinkling foam, Then down from the sky came the wooden shoe
Bringing the fishermen home.
'Twas all so pretty a sail, it seemed,
As if it could not be, And some folks thought 'twas a dream they dreamed,
Of sailing the beautiful sea; But 1 shall name you the fishermen three;
Wynken, Blynken and Nod.
Wynken and Blynken are two little eyes,
And Nod is a little head. And the wooden shoe that sailed the skies
Is a wee one's trundle bed.
feo shut your eyes while mother sings
Of wonderful sights that be, And you shall see the beautiful things,
As you rock on the misty sea; AVhere the old shoe rocked the lishermen three,
Wynken. Blynken and Nod.
AVynken, Blynken and Nod, one night
trailed off in a wooden shoe ; Sailed on a river of misty light
Into a sea of dew.
-8WVecK of ie Op. 17. Arthur Foote. (Words by Longfellow.)
Chorus. It was the schooner Hesperus.
That sailed the wintry sea, ,
And tlie skipper had taken his little daughter,
To bear him company. Blue were her eyes as the fairy flax, Her cheeks like the dtiwn of day, And her bosom white as tlie hawthorn buds,
That ope in the month of May. The skipper he stood beside the helm,
His pipe was in his mouth, And he watched how the veering Haw did blow.
Tlie smoke now west, now south. Then up and spake an old sailor, Had sailed to the Spanish Main.
Tenou Solo.
"I pray thee, put into yonder port, For 1 fear a hurricane."
"Last night the moon had a golden ring, And to-night no moon we see."
Chorus. The skipper, he blew a whiff from his pipe,
And a scornful laugh laughed he. Colder and louder blew the wind,
A gale from the northeast. The snow fell hissing in the brine
And the billows frothed like yeast.
Down came the storm and smote, amain
The vessel in its strength ; She shuddered and paused, like a frightened thing
Then leaped her cable's length.
--9Bass Solo.
" Come hither ! come hither ! my little daughter
And do not tremble so, For 1 can weather the roughest gale, That ever wind did blow.
Soprano and Bass Solo Chorus.
" Oh father! I hear the church bells ring,
O, say what may it be V " ¦' Tis a fog bell on a rock-bound coast!" And he steered for the open sea.
" 0 father! 1 hear the sound of guns,
O say what may it be " " Some ship in distress, that cannot live, In such an angry sea."
" O father ! I see a gleaming light
O say what may it be" But the father answered never a word, A frozen corpse was he.
Tenor Solo and Chorus.
Then the maiden clasped her hands and prayed
That saved she might be : And she thought of Christ, who stilled the wave,
On the lake of Ualilee.
Chorus.
And fast through the midnight dark and drear, Through the whistling sleet and snow,
Like a sheeted ghost, the vessel swept Tow'd the reef of Norman's woe.
And ever the fitful gusts between
A sound came from the land ; It was the sound of the trampling surf , On the rocks and the hard sea sand.
--ioHer rattling shrouds, all sheathed in ice With the masts went by the board :
Like a vessel of glass, she stove and sank, IIo ! Ho ! the breakers roared!
At daybreak, on the bleak sea-beach,
A fisherman stood aghast, To see the form of a maiden fair,
Lashed close to a drifting mast.
The salt sea was frozen on her breast,
The salt tears in her eyes ; And lie saw her hair, like the brown sea-weed,
On the billows fall and rise.
Such was the wreck of the Hesperus,
In the midnight and the snow ! Christ save us all from a death like this,
On the reef of Norman's Woe !
4.
(Bjornstjehne Bjoukson.--Translated ty C. II.) i.
And it was Olav Trygvason,
Steering o'er the north sea cold, Seeking afar for virgin kingdoms
"While sailing forth so bold. Dimly the land appearing They crowded the deck as storms were clearing.
II.
And it was Olav Trygvason,
Harborless seemed all the land, Wrecked would be all the kingly heroes,
Wrecked on the barren strand. Till one of them, astounded, Saw snow peaks with clouds surrounded.
III.
And it was Olav Trygvason,
Suddenly did he behold, High rising o'er him, temples lofty,
White walls, and domes of gold. Seized with a mighty longing, He strives to reach the land now dawning.
IV.
Woods decked the land in spring's array,
Pleasant streams ran purling by, Storms that at sea were wildly raging,
Came to the woods to die. Organs and bells were pealing, Arid the Viking spoke, with mystic feeling---12V.
"Here discovered, are foundations Light still triumphs over darkness, Spirits tremble, hearts are bounding, Joyfully his praises sounding.
VI.
" That thy faith may strong be builded, Pure as ice by sunlight gilded, Rise from nature's best endeavor, Seek thy (Jod, seek Him forever."
VII.
Like the Viking we are praying, Homage to the Highest paying. Spirits tremble, hearts are bounding, Joyfully His praises sounding.
VIII.
That thy faith may strong be builded, Pure as ice by sunlight gilded, Rise from nature's best endeavor, Seek thy God, seek Him forever!
--13 5. Trje
(English translation by C. H )
M
Deck thyself thou glowing sphere I Let the tree-tops joyful tremble I Fallow deer come here assemble ! For the world's delight draws near I Tender flowers without number, Open I Dewy eyes from slumber Blossom fairer, Drawing nearer-Comes the Mother with the Child.
Little birds in meadow land Now your joyous flight be winging, Tender songs ye would be singing With the lovely angel bund. Through the dawning wind of morning Touch the tree-tops in sweet warning Softly blowing, Gently going-Comes the Mother with the Child.
Deer and birds, and wind and trees, Shout, oh shout! for joy in Chorus ; Fear ye not your voice sonorous, Wakes Him on His Mother's knees ! Sing your slumber songs before Him, Yea, though countless worlds adore him Blossom fairer, Drawing nearer-Comes the Mother with the Child. '
--146. [a] §)chvikert. f]ymn to We
(Die Alsiacht.--Translation.)
Great is Jehovah, the Lord !
The heav'ns and the earth proclaim His wondrous might; In the storms are His dread accents heard,
In the wild forest stream lie calls by night; Great is Jehovah, the Lord !
AVondrous in His might,
Thou hears't it in the green budding boughs of the forest, Seest it in the corn fields that glow like gold,
In flow'rs ye may see it in bright varied hues, And in the stars still His marv'lous power behold.
Sound His voice in the dread thunder roll, And flames in the lightning on its swift blinding flight,
And each beating heart, ev'ry toul, Tells His wondrous pow'r, His pow'r and might,
Th' eternal God, the Lord.
Thou to Him dost look for aid,
In hope to gain His love and grace, Trust in Him, be not afraid,
He ne'er will turn away His face. Great is Jehovah, the Lord I
[b] Were 'ere YoU Walk, Handel.
-15[c] I'll §in£ Tee gon of raby, Ola-.
I'll sing thee songs of Aruby,
And tales of fair Cashmere, Wild tales to cheat thee of a sigh,
Or charm thee to a tear; And dreams of delight shall on Thee break,
And rainbow visions rise, And all my soul shall strive to wake
Sweet wonder in thine eyes.
Through those twin lakes, where wonder wakes,
My raptured song shall sink, And as the diver dives for pearls,
Bring tears, bright tears to tlu-ir brink; And dreams of delight shall on thee break,
And rainbow visions rise, And all my soul shall strive to wake
Sweet wonder in thine eyes.
--t67. Oallia. .... OoVmod.
Chorus.
Solitary lieth the city, she that was full of people, How is she widowed, she that was great among nations, Princess among the provinces, How is she put under tribute Lonely she weepeth in durxness, Her tears are on her cheeks,
And no one oft'ereth consolation; yea, all her friends have betrayed her.
Solo and Chorus.
Zion's ways do languish, none come to her solemn feasts :
All her gates are desolate, her priests sigh,
Yea, her virgins are afflicted and she is in bitterness.
Solo and Chorus.
Is it nothing to all ye that pass by
Behold, and see if there be any sorrow like unto my sorrow,
Now, behold, O Lord, look thou on my affliction,
See, the foe hath magnified himself.
Finale. Jerusalem ! Jerusalem I return thee to the Lord thy God.
