554. Song—A Health to ane I loe dear

by
 Chorus—Here’s a health to ane I loe dear,
 Here’s a health to ane I loe dear;
Thou art sweet as the smile when fond lovers meet,
 And soft as their parting tear—Jessy.
ALTHO’ thou maun never be mine, Altho’ even hope is denied; ’Tis sweeter for thee despairing, Than ought in the world beside—Jessy.
Here’s a health, &c.
I mourn thro’ the gay, gaudy day, As hopeless I muse on thy charms; But welcome the dream o’ sweet slumber, For then I am lockt in thine arms—Jessy.
Here’s a health, &c.
I guess by the dear angel smile, I guess by the love-rolling e’e; But why urge the tender confession, ’Gainst Fortune’s fell, cruel decree?—Jessy.
Here’s a health, &c.
