The tear and the smile in thine eyes -- Oh! Breathe not his name -- When he who adores thee -- The harp that once through Tara's halls -- Fly not yet -- Oh!

'Tis sweet to think -- Through grief and through danger (The Irish peasant to his mistress) -- When thro' life unblest we rove -- When thro' life unblest we rove (harmonized for four voices) -- It is not the tear at this moment shed -- It is not the tear at this moment shed (harmonized for two voices) -- 'Tis believed that this harp which I wake now for thee -- Love's young dream -- Tho' dark are our sorrows -- Weep on, weep on -- Lesbia hath a beaming eye -- I saw thy form in youthful prime -- By that lake whose gloomy shore -- She is far from the land -- Nay tell me not -- Avenging and bright -- What the bee is to the flowret -- Love and the novice (Here we dwell) -- This life is all chequer'd with pleasures and woes -- The shamrock -- At the mid hour of night -- One bumper at parting -- The last rose of summer -- The young May moon -- The minstrel boy -- The valley lay smiling before me (The song of O' Ruark, Prince of Breffni) -- Oh! Had we some bright little isle -- Farewell! But whenever you welcome the hour -- Oh! Doubt me not -- You remember Ellen -- I'd mourn the hopes that leave me -- Come o'er the sea -- Has sorrow thy young days shaded -- No, not more welcome -- When first I met thee -- While history's muse -- The time I've lost in wooing -- Oh! Where's the slave -- Come, rest in this bosom -- 'Tis gone, and for ever -- I saw from the beach -- Fill the bumper fair
