Need Some Help

When I was reading the poem, Maud, I came across some lines that were really familiar, as is they were in a song. I can almost hear a melody in my head (too bad I can hum it for you). Can anybody help me place these?
"It is gone; and the heavens fall in a gentle rain"
"For year, for ever, to part
But she, she would love me still;
And as long, O God, as she
Have a grain of love for me
So long, no doubt, no doubt,
Shall I nurse in my dark heart,
Howeverm weary a spark of will
Not to be trampled out."
[It may only be the first four lines of that one.]
But come to her waking, find her asleep,
Powers of the height, Powers of the deep
And comfort her tho' I die!
Oh yeah, "the music of the night," ALW used from line 675!!
