'Oh break, my heart! and Death, draw near! My day of joy is done. I ask no more to linger here; With thee hath set my sun. Of all our sorrow, stress, and strife, My heart hath sadly proved, This is the hardest grief in life- To love and not be loved.

I ask no more to linger here;
With thee hath set my sun.
Of all our sorrow, stress, and strife,
My heart hath sadly proved,
This is the hardest grief in life-
To love and not be loved.
