By the running stream & verdure of robe-maker
Give wine & break your penitence & strike the lute
Be happy for the running stream makes a wave
& says “I go, for I come not back again”


Th 878

O Beauty's Lamp! by stream and verdant plain
Pour wine, thy vows break, sound the zittern's strain!
Live blithely, for the murmuring water saith,
"Lo, when I ‘ve gone I come not back again!"
