The moon comes forth in her brightness ;
How lovely is that beautiful lady !
O to have my deep longings for her relieved !
How anxious is my toiled heart !

The moon comes forth in her splendour ;
How attractive is that beautiful lady !
O to have my anxieties about her relieved !
How agitated is my toiled heart !

The moon comes forth and shines ;
How brilliant is that beautiful lady !
O to have the chains of my mind relaxed !
How miserable is my toiled heart !
