The Lied, Art Song, and Choral Texts Archive


Language: French

Mets ta main sur mes yeux je ne veux plus rien voir
Et ne plus rien sentir hors ta chère presence
Puis qu'ainsi ta tendresse est mon unique espoir
Et que ton amour sur est ma seule croyance
Mets ta main sur mes yeux mets mon front sur ton Coeur
Que ton âme de fleur me caresse et péntre
M'imprégnant d'une exquise et mortelle langueur
Et fais descendre en moi le calme do ton être.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, it is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
