lyrics

Who Rides There So Late Through The Night?
A Father Spurs On With His Child
He Gathers The Boy Well Into His Arm
He Holdeth Him Close And Keepeth Him Warm

My Son Why Dost Thou Cling To My Arm?
Look Father Dost Thou Not See The King?
The Erlking With His Crown And Train
My Son ’Tis A Whisp Of Misty Rain

Come Hither Thou Child Go With Me
Fine Games I Know I’ll Play With Thee

O Father Dear Father And Dost Thou Not Hear
What The Elrking Whispers In My Ear?

Calm Calm Thee My Boy ‘Tis Only The Breeze
As It Rustles The Withered Trees

Treasures Many Do My Kingdoms Hold
My Mother Shall Grace Thee With Garments Of Gold

Wilt Thou Go Wilt Thou Go With Me?
My Daughters Wait On Thee Eagerly

Come Hither Thou Child Go With Me
My Daughters Around In Dance Shall In Sweep

I Love Thee Thy Beauty It Charms
I’ll Take You By Force If You Say No

O Father Dear Father He Seizes Me
My Heart Is As Cold As Cold Can Be

The Father Rides Swiftly With Terror
The Dying Child In His Arms
He Reaches The Castle With Spurring And Dread
The Child In His Arms Finds He Motionless
Dead
