Lady Maud:
 

Moments so fleeting
Stern spirits give,
My heart is beating
I breathe I breathe I live!
For three short hours
While darkness lowers
By mystic powers
I breathe I live!
By mystic powers
I breathe! I live!

Night's sombre awning
Has set me free,
The daylight's dawning brings night to me.
My heart is aching,
The daylight's breaking,
All other waking,
Brings night, brings night to me, brings night to me,
Brings night to me,


No moments so fleeting, stern spirits give,
My heart is beating,
I breathe, I breathe, I live.
For three short hours,
While darkness lowers,
By mystic powers,
I live, by mystic pow'rs I live,
While darkness, while darkness lowers,
I breathe, I live,
By mystic powers
I breathe, I live,
While darkness, while darkness low'rs,
I breathe, I breathe, I live!
