The Night Visiting Song

The night has passed, love, I can no longer tarry
The tempest's rages I must obey
I must away, love, without a slumber
Into the arms of the deep.

When he came to his true love's dwelling
He sat down upon a stone
He whispered softly through her window
"Does my true love lie alone?"

She lifted her head from her lily-white pillow
She lifted the sheets from off her breast
She whispered softly through her window
"Who is disturbing my night's rest?"

"It's I, it's I, your own true lover
Open the door and let me in
For I am tired, love, likewise I'm weary
I am wet unto the skin."

She got up with the greatest of pleasure
She opened the door and let him in
They lay all night in each other's arms
Till the long night was passed and gone.

When the long night was passed and over
When the cocks began to crow
He hugged and kissed her, and then he left her
He mounted his horse, and away did go.

The night has passed, love, I can no longer tarry
The tempest's rages I must obey
I must away, love, without a slumber
Into the arms of the deep.
