Bridal Chorus From Lohengrin

                Richard Wagner

Faithful and true, we lead ye forth
Where love triumphant shall crown ye with joy!
Star of renown, flow'r of the earth,
Blest be ye both far from all life's annoy.
Champion victorious, go thou before!
Maid bright and glorious, go thou before!
Mirth's noisy revel ye have forsaken,
Tender delights for you now awaken!
Fragrant abode enshrine ye in bliss,
Splendor and state in joy ye dismiss.
