作曲Jocelyn Pook, Edgar Allan Poe
The ring is on my hand,
And the wreath is on my brow;
Satins 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 rand as a knell,
and the voice seemed his who fell
in the battle down the dell,
and how 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,
"Oh, 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.
