Hopeless Love

Melody -

1. Since hopeless of thy love I go,
Some little mark of pity show;
And only one kind parting look bestow,

2. One parting look of pity mild
On him, through starless tempest wild,
Who lonely hence to-night must go, exiled.
  3. But even rejected love can warm
The heart through night and storm;
And unrelenting though they be,
Thine eyes beam life on me.

4. And I will bear that look benign
Within this darkly-troubled breast to shine,
Though never, never can thyself, ah me, be mine!
