VP_017731 Verse 1I saw the moon rise clear O'er hills and vales of snow, Nor told my fleet reindeer The track I wish'd. I wish'd to go; Yet quick he bounded forth, For well my reindeer knew, I've but one path on earth The path that leads to you. I saw the moon rise clear O'er hills and vales of snow, Nor told my fleet reindeer the track I wish'd. I wish'd to go; Yet quick he bounded forth, For well my reindeer knew, I've but one path on earth, The path which leads to you, The path which leads to you. The gloom that winter cast, How soon the heart forgets, When summer brings at last, Her sun that never, never sets: So dawn'd my love for you, So fix'd thro' joy and pain, 'Twill never set again, ne'er set again. Than summer sun more true, 'Twill never set again, 'Twill never set again.
