I hear his footsteps, music sweet; Almona's song of delight
Language: English 
I hear his footsteps, music sweet,
As long ago they came;
One moment and we truly meet,
Ah, better love than fame!

A sun that sheds consuming fire,
A torch that blows to flame,
Is not more fierce than my desire
That kindles at his name!
