MIDI File

Eugène: There is a sweet remembrance of the past,
A treasur'd dream, a dream I fondly store,
A mem'ry that within my heart will last
To cheer and comfort ever, evermore;
A solace sweet, a blessing still,
The hope which time can ne'er fulfil;
A solace sweet, a blessing still,
The hope which time can ne'er fulfil;
Both: The past has fondest dreams that live,
Which in the future ne'er can be,
Oh, the present knows nor cannot give,
Restore the happy past to me.
The past has fondest dreams that live,
Which in the future ne'er can be,
Oh, the present knows nor cannot give,
Restore the happy past to me.
   
Erminie: Our destinies the unseen future hides.
The coming gloom we cannot, cannot see,
And cheering hope for e'er with us abides,
Just telling thoughts of joys, of joys to be;
The past though blest may not compare
With future transports we may share,
The past though blest may not compare
With future transports we may share,
Both: The future hath its golden showers
And stores of pleasing, brightest toys,
Ah, which hope declares may yet be ours;
Eclipsing past, and present joys.
The future hath its golden showers
And stores of pleasing, brightest toys,
Ah, which hope declares may yet be ours;
Eclipsing happy past to me.
