Phyllis.
None shall part us from each other,
One in life and death are we:
All in all to one another —
I to thee and thou to me!
All in all to one another —
I to thee and thou to me!

Phyllis. Strephon.
Thou the tree, and I the flower; I the tree, thou the flower;
Thou the idol, I the throng; I the idol, thou the throng;
Thou the day, and I the hour; I the day, and thou the hour;
Thou the singer; I the song! I the singer; thou the song!

Strephon.

All in all since that fond meeting
When, in joy, I woke to find
Mine the heart within thee beating,
Mine the love that heart enshrined!
Mine the heart within thee beating,
Mine the love that heart enshrined!


Phyllis. Strephon.
Thou the stream, and I the willow; I the stream, and thou the willow;
Thou the sculptor, I the clay; I the sculptor, thou the clay;
Thou the ocean, I the billow; I the ocean, thou the billow;
Thou the sunrise, I the day! I the sunrise, thou the day!
Thou the stream, and I the willow; I the stream
Thou the sculptor, I the clay; and thou the willow
Thou the ocean, I the billow; I the ocean, thou the billow;
Thou the sunrise, I the day! I the sunrise, thou the day!
