Daughter Darling – Absconding lyrics

In the visions of the dark night
I have dreamed of joy departed
But a waking dream of life and light
Hath left me brokenhearted

There it goes away it goes
In the night it slips away
There I leave all that I loathe
Escape before the day breaks

That holy dream, that holy dream
While the world were all chiding
Cheered me as a lovely beam
A lonely spirit guiding
Spirit guiding
