SCENE I.--Plains of Hungary. Faust (alone in the fields. Sunrue.)
The winter has departed, spring is here!
River and brook again are flowing free.
And see, from the dome of heaven, pouring forth,
Fresh splendor breaks, and gladness everywhere.
I greet with joy the cool reviving breath of morning;
I drink full draughts of sweet, deliciou3, perfumed balsam,
Above, the wak'ning birds greet the day with their song.
'Mid tall and waving reeds the stream glides murm'ring along.
O, sweetest joy to dwell within the lonely forest,
Far from the crowded world and far from all its striving.
SCENE II.--Dance of peasants under the linden tree.
Cho.--The shepherd early dons his best,
With a posy smartly decks his breast,
And a bright knot of ribbons gaily flying,
Under the lime tree lass and lad
Now all are dancing there like mad.
Hurrah !
All round the lime tree whirling,
Tra, la, la, la!
Faust--I hear from far a joyous festive sound-II is the village folk at early dawn, Who dance and sing upon the grassy lawn, My darkened soul begrudges them their joys.
Uho.--Now all swaying to and fro, Every cheek has a warmer glow, Right and left, round and round The dancers flying,
With quickened breath and heated brow; At last they pause, they slacken now Hurrah!
Such panting and such sighing. " Now hold your tongue, you faithless one ! For vows like'yours are easy won, Lightly won and as lightly broken." And yet he drew the maid aside, While from the linden echoed wide Hurrah !
Now take thy lover's token Tra, In, la, la !
SCENE III.--Another purl of the plain., An army advancing.
Faust--A splendor of weapons is gleaming afar!
Ha! the sons of the Danube appareled for war; The}7 gallop joyfully on,
How sparkle their eyes, how Hash their arms; All hearts are thrilled--they chant their battle's
story-My heart alone is cold--even death to glory.
Hungarian' March -Orchestra.
the Zeeond.
SCENE IV.--North Germany. Faust (alone in his study.)
"Without regret I left the smiling meadows, Where jrrief pursued me still,
And without delight I now greet our haughty mountains ;
To my home I return.
Still is sorrow my guest. Oh, I suffer, I suffer! Starless night, spreading fiir her silence and her shades, Adds another .sorrow to my troubled heart. For me alone,
O Earth, thou hast no flow'rs, Where shall I find that which my soul desires Vainly I seek, it flies my eager quest, Enough! we'll make an end ! But I tremble! Why tremble thus at the abyss that before me yawns
0 cup, too long denied to my most ardent wishes! Come, vial, from thy shelf.
1 the poison will drain which must give me new light,
for aye end my woes !
{He lifts the cup to his lips. A sound of bells. Cliants are heard from a neighboring church).
Easter Hymn.
Cho.--Christ is risen from the dead ! J-Ins broken the tomb, Gladly hail the token, Sin's fetters are broken; Reversed is the dooin. Now the Master hath ascended, Rejoice ! for your bondage is o'er, And the reign of sin is ended, Praise him for evermore. Alas! those He loved can but languish.
And suffer, 'mid paiu and annoy. Oh, Master! we envy thy joy. In thy joy forget not the depth of our anguish.
Thy loved ones, they suffer, And their pain doth envy thy joy. Let us trust in the word of Christ risen, Peal out, ye Easter bells, Lo, your joyous clang foretells Redemption from our prison. Hosanna!
Faust--What hear I!
Oh, memory ! yes, from glad days departed, Awakened by these strains, thy rays break through
the night. My heart with new joy palpitates! Are faith nnd
hope again re-born to light Once my songs were pious, pray'rs to my lips would
Free soared my spirit's pinions, I dreamt a Paradise ! Over blooming meadows, over mountains, through
forests, Roamed I void of all care. Preseieut, through the
Sabbath, calm and still,
Resounded then this song to my jubilant mind. To these mem'ries of youth now succumbs my will.
Cho.--Hosannah ! Hosannah !
Faust--Alas, heavenly tones, why seek me in the dust
Why visit the accursed Sweet hymns of devotion,
Why come and conquer thus suddenly my stubborn will
Your soft, melodious strains bring peace to my soul. Songs more sweet than morning. 1 hear again !
My tears.spring forth, the earth has won me back.
SCENE V.--Faust and Mephistopheles.
Mephistophelbs (.suddenly appearing.) 0, pious frame of mind, child of heaven, 'tis well.
Your hand, dear Doctor! This glad Easter bell, With silver strain, Has charmed to peace again
Your troubled earthly brain.
Faust--And who art thou, whose ardent glances fierce, Even as a poignard, through my marrow pierce Thou must, if I'm to know thee, thou must tell me thy name.
Mephisto.--Why, for a doctor, the question seems flippant.
I am tli}' friend and comfort; I will end thy sorrow. I'll give thee all thou wishest, wealth and fame, Boundless joy, whate'er the wildest dreams of mortal can foreshow.
Faust--Poor demon, canst thou show what shall prove thy pretences
Mephisto.--Hark! I will bewitch thine eye and ear. Be buried no more, like the worms of the earth That gnaw at thy folios. Come ! Arise ! Follow me !
Faust--I consent.
Mepiiisto.--Let us go. Thou shalt study the world, Aud leave thy den, leave thy hateful study.
[They disappear in the air.
SCENE VI.--Auerbach's Cellar, in Leipsic.
Faust, Mephistopheles, Brandeu, Students, Burghers, Soldiers.
Drinking chorus of students:
Fill up again with good Rhine wine !
Mephisto.--Here, Faust, behold a jolly set of fellows, Who, with wine and song, make merry all day.
Cno.--When good red wine is freely flowing, A fig for the tempest outside ! Fill, and ne'er heed the wind that's blowing, By punch bowl and pipe we'll abide ! I love the glass that drownoth sorrow ! Since I was born I never walked straight, From my gossip the trick I borrow, He ever had a rolling gate ! When good red wine, etc.
Some Students--"Whoknows a good song or a story
Now our throats are tuned and clear. Others--Come, Brander, sing, and gather fresh glory. Brandkr--Xay, I know one, I made it myself. Cno.--Well begin! we're ready. Brandkr--Since you invite me, I'll give you at once
something new.
Cho.--Bravo, bravo!
Brander--There was a rat in the cellar nest, Who fat and butter made smoother; He had a paunch beneath his vest Like that of Dr. Luther. The cook laid poison cunningly, And then as sore opprest was he, As if he had love in his bosom.
He ran around, lie ran about,
His thirst in puddles laving;
He gnawed and scratched the house throughout,
But nothing cured his raving.
He whirled and jumped witli torment mad,
And soon enough the poor beast had
As if he had love in his bosom.
And driven at last, in open da}',
He ran into the kitchen,
Fell on the hearth and squirming lay,
In the last convulsion twitching.
Then laughed the murderess in her glee : " Ha! ha! he's at his last gasp," said she, " As if he had love in his bosom."
Cho.--As if, etc., etc.
Requiescat in pace ! Amen !
Brandeh--And now sins; a fugue, An " Amen " fugue, Let's improvise a scholarly piece !
Mepiiisto.--take notice, now, their bestiality
Will show itself, ere long, in its true colors.
A fugue on the melody of Bkandeu's song. Cho.--Amen ! Amen !
Mepiiisto.--(advancing)--By heavens! sirs, your fugue
is splendid!
To hear it is to dream one is in some holy place. Pray, let me freely say it: 'tis scholarly in style; Devout, thoroughly so.
One could not better express the pious sentiments Which, in closing all her petitions, Holy church sums up in this one word. In my turn, I will respond, by your leave with a song, On a no less pathetic theme than yours, sirs.
Cho.--Ah ! his praises have a cynical air! Who is this person, wiio mocks so freely Pale visaged, and red of hair. No matter! Let us hear, sing, and away with cave.
Mephisto.--There was a kingonce reigning, Who had a big black (lea, And loved him past explaining, As his own son were he. He called his man of stitches, The tailor came strightway ; Here, measure the lad for breeches, And measure his coat I say ! In silk and velvet gleaming He now was wholly drest, A coat with ribbons streaming,
A cross upon his breast.
He had the first of stations,
A minister's star and name,
And also his relations
Great lords at court became.
And lords and dames of honor Were plagued awake iu bed; The queen she had them on her, And all were bitten and bled. They did not dare to brush them, Or scratch them day or night. We crack them and we crush them At once, whene'er they bite.
Clio.--{shouting)--Bravo, bravo, bravissimo!
We crack them and we crush them At once, whene'er they bite.
Faust (to Mei'histo.)--Enough ! let's quit so foul and
coarse a place!
Hast thou no purer pleasures, calmer sport, To offer me, thou dread, infernal guide
Mephisto.--This is not to thy taste Come on !
[They spread their mantles and take flight.
SCENE VII.-Bushy meadows on the banks of the Elbe. Faust. Mephistopheles.
Meehisto.--In this fair bower,
Fragrant with many a flower,
On this sweet-scented bed,
Rest, O Faust, rest thy head, and slumber!
Soothed by voluptuous repose,
While fragrant roses on thy fever'd brow shall
Their blossoms unfolding thy head to wreath, Thou shalt be ravished with heavenly music. Oh harken ! Dost hear it The spirits of earth and of air, E'en now to lull thy sleep With their sweet strains prepare.
Faust's Vision. Chorus of Sylphs and Gnomes:
Dream, happy Faust,
For soon neiith a veil of purple and gold shall thine eyelids find rest;
Thy star .shall shine as the high dome of Heaven, Dreams of delight aud of love charm thy breast. Behold on either hand, The fair scenes we discover; The leaf and blossom cover With beauty rare the land. The trees are gently swaying, And happy lovers pass Beneath the shadows straying: The briar and the rose Have woven tangled bowers, The soft vine tendrils close Around the grapes and flowers; See where the lovers stray, Forgetful of the morrow, In blissful joy to-day, Untouched by care or sorrow. Now comes a pensive maiden, Faust, she shall be thine!
Faust--(asleep)--Margarita! 0, Margarita!
Cho.--The lake extends its flood at the feet of the mountains; By the murmuring fountain, are the green pastures
There the gay laughing choirs Re-echo o'er the plain ; Here the music inspires The dance that none disdain. For some are boldly breasting The silv'ry torrent streams, While milder swains are questing Their love in softer dreams.
Memiisto.--The charm is working. His soul is mine.
Cuo.--For e'en the timid nestling, Seeking shade and repose, "With the gay zephyrs wrestling Dares affront the sweet rose. Al who'd attain love's rapture, Must seek through earth and skies For the one star in nature That dawned to glad their eyes. Dream ! Happy Faust! Dream !
Mephisto.--He sleeps! Well done, my dainty elves! This debt I must repay. Now let him dream of love.
Dance of Sylphs--Orchestra.
Faust--(suddenly awakening) -Margarita! what a dream! now I believe in wonder !
Thou sweetest angel face, where dwellest thou By the eternal light, thou liv'st! No power shall tear us asunder.
Mephisto.--Ajise, and follow me again. To the modest chamber
I'll bring tliee, where she, thy mistress, sleeps. Of thy dream thou shalt see the truth ! Here comes a jolly party of students and soldiers ; They'll pass before thy beauty's dwelling; Along with these young fools, with their loud shouts
and songs,
We to the fair one's house will go. But thy transports restrain, and my counsels obey.
SCENE VIII. Chorus of Soldiers.
Towns with their high battlements, Tower and wall,
Fair maids with their haughty thoughts,
Scorning us all!
To glory they call us;
Soon they both shall fall.
No danger appals us,
Glorious is our life !
The trumpet that calls us,
Our banner beneath ;
It summons to pleasure
Or summons to death.
Fair maiden and city
Appeal to our pity,
And yield in the strife !
No danger appals us,
How glorious our life !
Students' Sing.
Jam nox stellata velamina pundit
Nuiic bibendum et emandum est, etc., etc.
ELts' Chorus and Students' Song in Combination.
the Uhird.
SCENE IX.--Drums and Trumpets sounding the taltocr. Faust (in Marguerite's Chamber. Evening).
Thou sweet twiliglif, be welcome; Thee greet I from my heart. Thou softly fill'st this place To chaste repose set apart, Wherein I feel a vision kiss my fevered brow, Like the balmy breath of early morning. Sure 'tis love inspires me.
Oh, how I feel my cares take wings and fly away. How dear to me this silence. How joyously I breathe this pure air! O youthful maiden, my sweet enslaver! How I love thee, O earthly angel! What awful joy this moment swells my heart! With what ecstasy I gaze ou thy maidenly couch! How sweet the air of this chamber! O God ! after long years of torture What joy is mine ! Pure like radiance celestial;
My suffering endeth; .after death's torments follows bliss!
SCENE X.--Faust and Mkpiiistoi'iieles.
MEPHrsTo.--(entering)--I hear her coming!
Conceal thyself behind these curtains.
Faust--Heavens! ray heart will break With fear and joy.
[Faust is concealed behind the curtains.
Mephisto.--Now make the most of time. Farewell! Thyself restrain, or tbou shall lose her. Good, my spirits and I, now .shall .sing For you the sweetest wedding ditties.
SCENE XI. EnUr Marguerite {with lamp). Faust (conceakd).
Maug.--How sultry is the air! I feel--I know not how. Since uiy dream of last night, my mind is all
unsettled. An image more full of charm ne'er did mine
eyes behold. A handsome man! Ah were he to me but
given! I dreamt he vow'd to love me, and I felt
heavenly bliss! In the wide space of life my eye doth seek him
all vainly !
There was a king in Thule
Most true unto the grave, Whom dying, his sweetheart
A golden goblet gave.
Naught was to him more precious,
He drained it at every bout, His eyes with tears ran over
As oft as hedrauk thereout.
And when he came to dying, All the towns in his lands he told,
Naught else his heir denying, Except the goblet of gold.
He sat at the royal banquet
With his knights of high degree,
In the lofty hall of his fathers, In the castle by the sea.
There sat the old carouser
And drank his last life glow, Tlieu threw the hallowed goblet
Into the tide below.
He saw it plunging and filling,
And sinking deep in the sea; Then his eyes fell forever,
And never more drank he.
SCENE XII.--Square before Marguerite's house. Invocation.
Mepiusto.--Ye spirits of flickering flame!
Hither come ! Haste ! I need your aid !
Quick appear ! Quick appear !
Ye Will-o'-the-Wisps!
Your baleful ami treach'rous glimmers
Must bewilder a maid, and lead her unto us.
In the name of the devil, get you dancing,
And take care, ye tiddlers of hell,
To mark the measure well,
Else I will quench your glow.
Minuet of the Will-o'-the-Wisps--Orchestra.
Mepiusto. (Recitative).--To this lute I'll sing a serenade, One that shall please the lady ; It is moral, her taste to suit.
Serenade of with Chorus of Will-o'-theWisps.
AVhy dost wait at the door of thy lover,
My foolish Kate, in the gray of llie morning
Why dost wait, foolish Kate
0 beware, nor enter there ;
Trust liis fair speeches never,
Men deceivers were ever,
And love is but a snare.
Clio.--Oh, sweet maiden beware, Come away, do not enter. Fair lass heed thee well, Lest thy lover betray thee. Then good night. Ha!
Mephisto.--Hush ! Now disappear.
Keep silence ! [ Will-o'-lheWisps disappear. Let us listen to the cooing of our doves.
Marg.--0 God ! do I dreum Does the light deceive Can a dream reality be
Faust--Angel adored ! whose dear and lovely image, While yet I had not known thee, illumined my
dark soul;
At last I thee behold, and o'er the jealous cloud veil Which hid thee from my sight, my love the victory
hath won. Margarita! I love thee !
Marg.--Thou knowest my name, and I, too, often whispered thine--Faust.
Faust--That name is mine, but I will take another, if it please thee better.
Makg.--In dreams I thee have seen. Faust--Hast seen me in thy dreams
Maiio.--I know thy voice, thy face, thy sweet and winning speech.
Faust--And thou didst love me"
Maug.--I--I trust in thee!
Faust--Margarita, Thou sweetest!
Marg.--All my heartfelt kisses long ago were thine.
Both--Image most sweet! How all my soul thou
fillest. To which my brightest dreams have ever fondly
aspir'd. I am near thee at last, no,misty cloud can hide
thee now from nly eyes. Thou art all my heart ever desir'd.
Faust--Margarita, my treasure!
Marg.--So much bliss makes me tremble.
Faust--I love thee beyond measure. To my heart call I thee Inteustly love I thee.
Marg.--For ever to thee devoted, beloved must I be. I feel a nameless, sweet, thrilling tremor. . . .
Faust--Let, dearest child, mine arm enfold thee.
Marg.--Wherefore fill mine eyes, see, with tears, Is it pain, is it prescience--is it bliss
Fadst--Ah come--ah come !
Mbphisto. (entering abruptly)--Away, it is too late ! Marg.--Who is that man Faust--A fiend ! Mephisto.--Nay, a friend. Marg.--He ja one who strikes fear to the heart. Mephisto.--No doubt, I am intruding. Faust--Who bade thee come Depart!
Mephisto,--I come to save this angel. E'en now the neighbors all Awakened by our songs, run hither, And point out the house to passers by. At Margaret they are scoftiug, And they call for her mother. The dame will soon be here.
Faust--0 horror! Mepiiisto.--We must be off. Faust--Cruel illusion.
Mephisto.--Soon shall you meet again; Consolation is near, Follows close Upon sorrow. Marg.--Yes, they come, dearest Faust,
Oh, how bitter is this parting! Till to-morrow, farewell!
Faust--Farewell, then, bright array Of hopes that fill my bosom! Farewell, thou feast of love That mocked my longing heart.
Mephisto.--Come on, the morning dawns.
Faust--Earewell, thou lovely night, of even gods the
envy, Thou golden feast of love, bliss of my dreams,
farewell! My raptures swiftly fled. Who the future will
warrant Will the night e'er return, where promise on me
Cho.--Hallo ! Mistress Martha, See to your daughter's safety ! The warning only conies in time, If her gallant you wish to lime. Come home, good dame, Or woe betide the maiden's surety ! Hallo!
Mephisto.--The crowd is coming. Let us hasten away. Cho.--Hallo! Mistress Martha, etc.
Marg.--0, heaven! Dost thou hear those cries Woe is me if they enter And thy presence her surprise !
Mephisto.--Come, 'tis time to be going. Faust--0, despair! Mhphisto.--0, what folly !
Marc--Farewell! That little gate Through the garden doth lead.
Faust--0, my love ! Cruel fate. Mephisto.--Quick, away ! Quick, away !
Faust--At last I've seen thee near. Fairest treasure of nature !
"Par the T
Song. Margukihtk (alone).
My beart witli grief is heavy, My peace of mind is o'er; Ne'er again .shall I find it. Ah! Never, nevermore ! Where my love is not with me It is to me us the tomb; My life without his presence All shrouded is in gloom ! My brain, so sore bewildered Hath no power of thought; My dull and feelile senses Are entirely distraught. I look out at the casement, His fine tall form to see. To meet him and be with him Is heaven's own joy to me. His proud and noble bearing, Of his smile--the winning grace, Of his hand--the soft, pressure, And ah ! his fond embrace! My heart with grief is heavy, My peace of mind is o'er; Never again shall I find it. Ah! never, nevermore. All day long to be near him Fondly yearns my poor heart. Ah, could I tightly clasp him I would ne'er let him depart. Him with kisses I'd smother. All glowing with love's fire; And on his lips still hanging I'd fain at last expire !
[ Drums and Irumpels sound a retreat.
Chorus of Soldiers and Students in the distance.
Soldiers--The trumpet that calls us our banner
beneath, It summons to pleasure or summons to death.
Marg.--Day's reign will soon be ended;
Dusky twilight approaches.
Afar the evening drums and trumpets
Now are sounding
With songs and shouts of joy,
As on that blessed evening When first I saw Faust.
Students.--Jam nox stollata, etc. Mako.--He coineth not.
SCENE XVI.--Cavern and forest.
Faust {alone).
Oil, boundless nature, spirit sublime, mysterious; Alone thou givest comfort to my unhappy soul, On thy breast, mighty power, is my sorrow abated and
my strength renewing. I seem to live again ! Blow ye fierce howling winds! Cry out! ye boundless
forests! Fall down ye rocks! And roar, ye mountain streams, wildly rushing! With your thundering sounds my voice loves to unite. Ye rocks and streams and woods accept my homage. Bright sparkling worlds above, Towards you leaps forth the piteous cry of a heart In anguish, of a soul madly longing, Vainly striving for joy !
SCENE XVII. (Recitative and chase).
Mepiiisto.--(scaling the rocks)--Say dost thine eye discern upon the azure vault the star of constant love
Its potent influence thou'll find very needful; For in dreams thou art lost, Whilst that poor child, thy dear MargaritaFaust--0 cease !
Mki'iiisto.--'Tis trap, I should be still. Thou lov'st
no more.
And yet she has been dragged to prison, And, for poisoning her mother, To death justly sentenced.
Mki'iiisto.--I hear the hunters' horns in the woods.
Faust--No jesting; what saidst thou Marguerite in, chains
Mepihsto.--A certain brownish liquor, quite safe, If used aright, which she received of thee, To make her mother sleep, lest she disturb Your amours, has brought on all this woe. Fondly hugging her dream, Awaiting thee, she gave the potion still. This excess at last told upon the old dame And killed her. Now thou knowest all the truth.
Faust--Treacherous monster!
Mephisto.--And thus has her love for thee led her on.
Faust--(.with fury)--Woe to thee !
Canst thou not save her Mephisto.--Ah, 'tis I am the miscreant!
This is ever your way
Ye ridiculous mortals!
No matter! To free her from prison and save her.
But what hast thou done for me
Since I have been thy slave
Faust--O, quickly speak!
Mephisto.--Of thee Naught saye thy signature
To this parchment scroll.
Thy love at once is freed from judgment and death
If thou wilt sign this oath to-morrow, to servo me. Faust--Why till to-morrow wait
'Tis to-day thou must save her:
The parchment! [He signs.
Behold, 'tis done!
And now swiftly conduct me to the cell. With despair I am hast'ning,
Margurite, to thee !
@@@@Mephisto.--Come hither, Vortex! Giour!
These magic steeds shall hear us quick as thought! Now mount we, and away at ouce-Justice tarries for no man !
SCENE XVIII.--The ride to Hell. Faust nnd Mephistopheles galloping on two black horses.
Faust--Through my heart her sad voice is ringing
mournfully. Poor soul, lost and forsaken.
Chorus op Peasants (kneeling before a rustic crucifix)-Sancta Maria, ora pro nobis ! etc., etc.
Faust--Take heed ! a pious crowd of poor women and children kneeling around yon cross.
Mephisto.--Never mind them ; hasten on ! ChohU8 op Peasants--Sancta Maria, ora pro nobis.
Cries of terror; the women and children scatter in confusion. The riders pass by.
Faust--See, a hideous shape pursues us with loud cries. Mephisto.--Thou dreamest!
Faust--What a host of foul birds fill the skies!
With dismal shriek 'round my head they are whirling.
Mephisto. (slacking his speed)--The passing bell for her
is already sounding. Dost thou fear Let's return ! [They halt.
Faust--No, the goal must be won !
[They resume with quickened speed. Mephisto. (urging his horse)--On ! On ! On !
Faust--Ou every side--dost see -Spectral forms are arising! There the skeletons dance, While gastly laugh and gesture The foul horror enhance.
Mephisto.--Think of thy Marguerite, And laugh at the dead. On ! On !
Faust (.horror struck)--The horses in terror Are tearing their bridles. My hair stands on end ! Convulsed seems the world ! The thunders are roaring, As if to destruction The earth would be hurled! It raineth blood !
Mephisto.--Ye slaves of hell's dominion, Your trumpets blow-Your loud triumphal trumpets! His soul is mine.
Faust--Ah ! Doomed ! Mephisto.--Victor am I.
[They fall into the ayss.
SCENE XIX.--Pandemonium.
Chorus of the Spirits of Hell--Has! Irimira karabra-o!
The Princes of Darkness--Hast thou conquered this proud immortal soul, and enslaved it, Mephisto, for aye.
Mephisto.--Lord and master for aye.
Princes--Then did Faust freely sign the dread act that did yield up his soul to our fires
Mephisto.--Of his own free will he signed.
Chorus, Spirits of Hem,1-Has ! Mephisto! Has! Irimira karabra-o!
EPILOGUE.--On Earth.
Princes of Darkness--And the Hell's gates were still. The seething sound alone of the vast lakes of fire, The gnashing teeth and wail that dread torments
Alone were heard above; while in the depths profound, in dread mystery drowned, ¦ there was wrought-Small Ciiobus--An awful deed.
SCENE XX.-I11 Heaven.
Celestial Spirits--Laus! Hosannnh ! Hosannah ! Receive a contrite soul, O Lord !
Voice prom Heaven--Marguerite, rise! Marguerite's Apotheosis.
Chorus of Heavenly Spirits--Ascend ou high, innocent spirit!
Once misled by earthly love, But now restored to thy primitive beauty, Thou shalt see the realms above. Come, the heavenly chuir In joyous strains conspire To greet thy ransomed soul In the courts of the blest. By tribulation tried, Thy faith and hope have saved thee From the world's raging tide. Rise, Marguerite, rise ! Arise!
