How sweet the answer Echo makes to music at night
When rous'd by lute or horn, she wakes,
and far away o'er lawns and lakes goes answ'ring light, goes answ'ring light!
How sweet the answer Echo makes to music at night,
When, rous'd by lute or horn, she wakes,
And, far away o'er lawns and lakes, goes answ'ring light, goes answ'ring light!

Yet love hath echoes truer far, And far more sweet
than e'er beneath the moonlight's star,
Of horn or lute or soft guitar the songs repeat, the songs repeat.
Yet love hath echoes truer far, and far more sweet,
Than e'er beneath the moonlight's star,
Of horn or lute or soft guitar the songs repeat, the songs repeat.

'Tis when the sigh in youth sincere and only then,
The sigh that's breath'd for one to hear
Is by that one, that only Dear, Breath'd back again, breath'd back again,
'Tis when the sigh in youth sincere, And only then,
The sigh that's breath'd for one to hear
Is by that one, that only Dear, is by that one that only Dear,
Breath'd back, breath'd back again.
