is heard in our land - rejoice
in the Spirit's notes of love!
The Bridegroom thrills that the voice
of the turtle-dove is heard
in our land since the tones are choice.
The voice - with the graces conferred -
of the turtle-dove, we understand,
is heard in our land, undeterred.
We are heedful to love's command
Since the voice of the turtle-dove
is heard in its charm in our land.
