The Poetry translated from the German, and adapted expressly for this work to a German Air. Andantino.

Be-side a fountain's border, Where wanton ze-phyrs rove, A nymph in

sweet dis-order,

Now sleeps in yon - der grove:

If thus her beau-ties charm me, All sleep-ing as she

lies,

What ills, a - las! shall harm

On her white arm reposing,
Reclines her lovely cheek;
Far sweeter tints disclosing,

Than May's sweet mornings deck.
What tender fears alarm me-
What tender hopes arise;
Alas! what ills shall harm me,
When once she opes her eyes!

me When once she opes her eyes.

And fain would I discover

What pains my breast invade;
But, ah! too timid lover!
My lips refuse their aid.
May Love with boldness arm me,
And check desponding sighs;
Or, oh! what ills shall harm me,
When once she opes her eyes!

HAVE YE FAITH IN ONE ANOTHER.
Music by T. B. Brett, St. Leonards.-Composed expressly for this Work.

[graphic]

Still have faith in one an oth-erHave ye faith in one another,

When ye whisper love's fond vow! It will not be always summer,

Nor be always bright as now:

And, when winter time comes o'er thee,
If some kindred heart ye share-
Have ye faith in one another!

Then ye never shall despair.
Have ye faith in one another!

Nor should doubts alone incline; That would make the world a desert, Where the sun would never shine.

You may need that friend - ship yet.
We have all some transient sorrow
That o'ershadows us to-day;
But have faith in one another,
And it soon shall pass away.
Have ye faith in one another!

Let true honour be your guide,
And let truth alone be spoken,

What else ever may betide.
Falsehood may at times prevail-
Yes, my friends, no doubt it will;
But have faith in one another,

And the truth shall triumph still!

Here am I in distress. like a ship water-logg'd,
Not a tow-rope at hand or a sa.l;
I'm left by my crew,-and, may I be flogg'd,
But the doctor's a son of a whale:

While I'm swallowing his slops,
How nimble are his chops;
Thus queering the old commodore :-
Bad case, commodore-
Can't say, commodore-

Mus'nt flatter, commodore,' says he :
For the bullets and the gout
Have so knock'd your hull about,
That you'll never more be fit for sea!'

What! no more be afloat !-blood and fury! they

I'm a seaman, and only threescore !
And if, as they tell me, I'm likely to die,
Odzooks! let me not die ashore.

As to death, 'tis all a joke-
Sailors live in fire and smoke:
So, at least, says the old commodore;
The rum old commodore-

The tough old commodore

The fighting old commodore, says he :-
Whom the bullets nor the gout,.
Nor the foreigners to boot,

Shall kill, till they grapple him at sea.

Steal the ro-se's leaves between, steal the 1" - se's leaves between?

Ev'ry bird, from brake and valley Warbling, tells its tale of love; Beasts from leafy covert sally,

O'er the smiling earth to rove.

Why should man, 'mid happy creatures,
Shroud alone his brow with cares?
Let him gaze on Nature's features,
Till his heart her gladness shares!
