Santa Lucia

See where the star of eve,

Beams gently yonder,

See where from wave to wave,

Soft breezes wander;

Far down the silver track,

Twilight is falling,

Far, oh, so far away,

Sweet songs are calling.

Come to my bounding bark,

Santa Lucia,

Santa Lucia.


See, see how fair it is,

There in mid-ocean,

Rocked by the silver waves,

With gentlest motion;

All sunk in peace and rest,

All sweetly dreaming,

Now thro’ the deep’ning night,

Moonlight is streaming.

Come then ere night is o’er,

Come leave the noisy shore,

Santa Lucia,

Santa Lucia.
