Lyrics: Ossian (James Macpherson)

Retire, my love, for it is light
And the dark winds sigh in thy hair;
Retire, my love, to the hall of my feasts.
Cease a little while, O wind,
Stream, be thou silent awhile;
Let my steps be heard on the heath.
My love is fairer than the light,
More pleasant than the gale of the hill,
Which sighs on the hunter's ear.
