The ring is on my hand

And the wreath is on my brow

Satin and jewels grand

Are all at my command

And I am happy now

And my lord he loves me well

But when first he breathed his vow

I felt my bosom swell

For the words rang as a knell

And the voice seemed his who fell

In the battle down the dell

And who is happy now

But he spoke to re-assure me

And he kissed my pallid brow

While a reverie came o'er me

And to the church-yard bore me

And I sighed to him before me

Thinking him dead D'Elormie

I am happy now !

And I am happy now !

And thus the words were spoken

And this the plighted vow

And though my faith be broken

And though my heart be broken

Here is a ring as token

That I am happy now !

Would God I could awaken !

For I dream I know not how !

And my soul is sorely shaken

Lest an evil step be taken

Lest the dead who is forsaken

May not be happy now
