Words by Mrs. Bloomfield Moore
Published by Chappell & Co., 1887.


 


In waves the music rose and fell!
My soul was held as by a spell,
Some fairy's fond endeavour;
In waves the music lived and died,
And I became one glorified,
For ever,
For ever!

"Call me not back to earth," I said,
Here leave me as among the dead!
Where sorrow enters never;
Through gates that music leaves ajar,
The glory streams from heav'n afar,
For ever,
For ever!

Aurora Triumphans
(Evelyn de Morgan)
de Morgan - Aurora

Thy voice, dear love, thine eyes of light
Shall guide me through life's stormy night
Like beacons waning never.
Beyond those radiant gates ajar,
Whose splendour streams from heav'n afar!
For ever,
For ever!

Thy voice, dear love, thine eyes of light
Shall guide me through life's stormy night
For ever,
For ever!
