Album of Five Songs

Song Cycle by Francis Alexander Korbay (1846 - 1913)

?. Bring her again [sung text not yet checked]

Bring her again, O western wind,
Over the western sea:
Gentle and good and fair and kind,
Bring her again to me!

Not that her fancy holds me dear,
Not that a hope may be:
Only that I may know her near,
Wind of the western sea.

?. The full sea rolls and thunders [sung text not yet checked]

The full sea rolls and thunders
In glory and in glee.
O, bury me not in the senseless earth
But in the living sea!

Ay, bury me where it surges
A thousand miles from shore,
And in its brotherly unrest
I'll range for evermore.
