Wilt thou say, Farewell.

Wilt thou say, Fareweel love,
And from Rosa part,
Rosa's tears will tell love,
The anguish of her heart.
I'll still be thine, and thou‘lt be mine,
I'll love thee, though we sever.
Oh, say, can I e'er cease to sigh,
Or cease to love? No never.

Wilt thou think of me, love,
When thou'rt far away?
Oh! I'll think of thee, love,
Never, never stray.
I'll still be thine, and thou'lt be mine;
I'll love thee, though we sever.
Oh, say, can I ere cease to sigh,
Or cease to love? No, never.

Let not other’s wiles, love,
Thy ardent heart betray:
Remember Rosa's smiles, love,
Rosa far away. I'll still be thine, and thou‘lt be mine;
I‘ll love thee, though we sever.
Oh, say, can I ere cease to sigh,
Or cease to love? No, never.
