Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me,
Starlight and dewdrope are waiting for thee;
Sounds of the rude world heard in the day,
Lulled by the moonlight have all passed away!
Beautiful dreamer, queen of my song,
List while I woo thee with soft melody;
Gone are the cares of life's busy throng.
Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me!
Beautiful dreamer, out on the sea,
Mermaids are chanting the wild lorelie;
Over the streamlet vapors are borne,
Wailing to fade at the bright coming morn.
Beautiful dreamer, beam on my heart,
E'en as the morn on the streamlet and sea;
Then will nil clouds of sorrow depart,
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!
