Up in the night
The cloudless full moon sky
I wait, wait for my love

Oh, when he's here
My small hands clasped he'll take
And on my finger bare he'll slip a reserved fire-ring

Oh, do I hear
The deaf note of the ring
I sigh, sigh what can this mean

Oh, do I see a specter white as snow
Sucking at the fountain wine
She sings her song:

"Oh, all the years ago
This fairy knight and I, my love and I, where to we love
But oh, an envious one would have me for his own
Through my heart a soul was plunged
My blunted flaw and I was done"

Oh, then she disappeared
The ghost of the fountain
With the water wine red
Oh, tale of tragedy
I know not what this means for me
Will my vows turn me to death

Ah, all is cruel
I have now chosen thee
I weep, weep for the trial's head
Oh Destiny, it's faded love you bring
Yet still I wait for my soul's mate until the end

Yes, in his arms I'll stay until my dying day
My love and I can ne'er be torn apart
And even when we're dead and gone we'll see love underground
