Yes ! Brothers, yes ! it is the midnight drum,
Falls on the ear, so blithe, so clear,
Of welcome rest his heart to cheer.
No more he dreams of soft repose,
He pants to meet his country's foes.

Who shall win my lady fair

Song..“ When the moon is brightly shining”... Molique.
REV. R. DUCKWORTH.
When the moon is brightly shining,
Then may song its sweets impart,
Round the unsuspecting heart!
Silver beams their way can win,
Unobserved may venture in !
Light and sound their pow'rs uniting,
Soft illusions soon will shed;
Shining now around her head.
Light and sound her eyes to close,
Mid'st the dreams of sweet repose !
Should she sleep, then gently wake her,
Light and sound in wondrous mood,
Meet the heart by whom she's woo'd.
And the curtain ope around,
Or the rays thus tuneful sound.
Lure her then in sweet amazement,
Towards her love who waits below;
And a parting smile bestow.
While I strike each chord with might-
Then, oh, then, good night, good night!
