They have giv'n thee to another,
They have broken ev'ry vow;
They have giv'n thee to another,
And my heart is lonely now.
They remember not our parting.
They remember not our tears,
They have sever"d in an hour
The tenderness of years.
Oh! was it well to leave me;
Thou could'st not so deceive me;
Long and sorely I shall grieve thee,
Lost, lost Rosabel.

They have giv'n thee to another,
Thou art now his gentle bride;
Had I lov'd thee as a brother,
I could see thee by his side;
But I know with gold they've won thee,
And thy trusting heart beguil'd;
Thy mother, too, doth shun me,
For she knew I loved her child.
Oh! was it well to sever
Two fond hearts forever?
I can only answer-never!
Lost, lost Rosabel!

They have giv'n her to another,
She will love him, too, they say;
If her mem'ry do not chide her,
Oh! perhaps, perhaps she may.
But I know that she hath spoken
What she never can forget.
And tho* ray heart be broken.
It will love her, love her yet.
Oh! 'twas not well to sever
Two fond hearts forever?
I can only say-forever-
Dear, dear Rosabel!
