Nos. 15 and 16 - Entr'acte and Opening Chorus Act II - Day born of love

MIDI File

Chorus: Day born of love,
Of gladness and delight
Your moments soon invite to mystic marriage rite!
Thron'd high above
O Tento Sama shines.
And laughing, he divines a lover's sweet designs!
Ohayo! Ohayo!
Moon by night and sun by day
Tender beam and blazing ray!
Ohayo! Ohayo!
Watch and ward o'er lovers keep!
Day to drink of pleasures deep
Night for rest and gentle sleep
Night for rest and sleep.
Day born of love,
Of gladness and delight
Your moments soon invite to mystic marriage rite!
Politely dress'd
In all our best
The wedding we await,
And hope they won't be late,
Or else forget the date.
What would be done if either one
Neglected to appear?
If somebody demurr'd
Or anything occurr'd
With all to interfere?
Before our eyes the prospect lies
Of rich and festive fare,
With cups of saké rare
To toast the happy pair.
No wonder then that maids and men
Unite in Hymen's praise,
And sing their joyous lays
With blushes all ablaze.
