SONG FROM "NANON."
Why dots this day to me impart
Such heartfelt joy as this?
Why thus betray my beating heart
Thy tale of tender bliss?
Ah! 'tis St. Anna's day,
Saint Anna, Saint Anna!
No fairer day has been
The long delightful year hath seen!
Anna, to thee my steps I wend.
My steps I wend, my steps I wend;
Anna, to thee my best song I send,
My song I send, my song I send;
Nation. Nanette, thy name shall ring,
Thy name shall ring, thy name shall ring;
long as I live, thy dear praise I'll sing,
Yes, thy praise I'll sing!
