Oh Sleep, Why Dost Thou Leave Me? lyrics

Oh sleep
Oh sleep, why dost thou leave me?
why dost thou leave me?
why thy visionary joys remove?
Oh sleep, oh sleep
oh sleep, again deceive me
oh sleep, again deceive me
to my arms restore my wand'ring love
my wand'ring love, restore my wand'ring love!
again deceive me, oh sleep!
to my arms, to my arms restore
my wand'ring love!
