Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
I miss thee each lone hour,
Star of my heart!
No other voice has power lay to impart,
I listen for thy step
Thy kind sweet tone;
But silence whispers me
Thou art alone!
I listen for thy step,
Thy kind sweet tone,
But silence whispers me
Thou art alone!

[Verse 2]
Darkness is on the hearth
Naught do I say;
Book’s are but little worth
Thou art away!
Voices the true and kind,
Strange are to me,
I have lost heart and mind,
Thinking of thee,
Voices the true and kind,
Strange are to me,
I have lost heart and mind,
Thinking of thee,
