IN MY HEART THERE'S A FERVENT EMOTION
Irish Melody
Air—"One Bumper at Parting." (Irish Melody—Moll Roe.)

In my heart there's a fervent emotion,
Since reason first beamed on my mind,
As a gem in the depths of the ocean,
In light of its own 'tis enshrined;
Like summer waves, shining and flowing,
Or winter waves, bounding along,
When thoughts come on rapid and glowing,
My heart and my soul's in my song.

To friendship, when mirth fills the glasses,
And wit flashes bright as the sun,
And the sands of old time even passes,
Like diamond dust sparkling on;
To beauty when youth fills the bowl up,
And fancy's bright visions will throng;
When love calls the light of the soul up,
My heart and my soul's in my song.

And, oh! when the chivalrous story
Of Nassau comes bright o'er my mind—
His banner, his trumpet of glory,
His brow with the laurel entwined.
When Derry the bosom inspires,
When Boyne the proud feelings prolong;
Oh! then with the zeal of our sires,
My heart and my soul's in my song!

-The Orange Melodist, Original Orange Songs, With Occasional Verses and an Appendix, Containing Copious Explanatory Notes, Brother William Archer, Oldbrige lodge 597 (Dublin: Brother J. Kirkwood, Printer, 13, Upper Ormond-quay, 1852).
