Five English popular songs  (1815-1820) 
Go where glory waits


Go where glory waits thee;
But while fame elates thee,
Oh! still remember me:
When the praise thou meetest,
To thine ear is sweetest,
Oh! then remember me.
Other arms may press thee,
Dearer friends caress thee.
All the joys that bless thee
Sweeter far may be;
But when friends are nearest,
And when joys are dearest,
Oh! then remember me.

When at eve thou rovest,
By the star thou lovest,
Oh! then remember me.
Think when home returning
Bright we’ve seen it burning,
Oh! then remember me.
Oft as summer closes,
When thine eyes reposes
On its lingering roses,
Once so lov’d by thee;
Think on her who wove them,
Her who made thee love them,
Oh! then remember me.

When around thee, dying,
Autumn leaves are lying,
Oh! then remember me.
And at night, when gazing
On the gay hearth blazing.
Oh! then remember me.
Then should music stealing
All the soul of feeling,
To thy heart appealing,
Draw one tear from thee;
Then let mem’ry bring thee
Strains I us’d to sing thee.
Oh! then remember me.
