Come, I am longing to hear thee,
Beautiful child of song,
Come though the hearts that are near thee,
Around the devotedly throng.
Refrain:
Come, I am longing to hear thee,
Beautiful child of song,
Beautiful child of song,
I’m longing to hear thee
Carol thy lay, sweet child of song.
Come, for the spell of a fairy
Dwells in thy magical voice,
And at thy step, light and airy,
E’en cold hearts enraptured rejoice.
