Lyrics

VERSE 1
I have a true and noble lover,
He is my sweetheart, all my own,
His like on earth who shall discover?
His heart is mine, and love thee ever.
We pledged our troth each to the other,
And for our happiness I pray,
Our lives belong to one another.
Oh happy, happy wedding day,
Oh happy, happy wedding day.

CHORUS
Come! Come! I love you only,
My heart is true,
Come! Come! My life is lonely,
I long for you,
Come! Come! Naught can efface you,
My arms are aching to embrace you,
Thou art divine!
Come! Come! I love you only,
Come, hero mine.

VERSE 2
It is my duty to bow before thee,
It is my duty to love, adore thee!
It is my duty to love thee ever,
To love thee ever, love thee ever.
We pledged our troth each to the other,
And for our happiness I pray,
Our lives belong to one another.
Oh happy, happy wedding day,
Oh happy, happy wedding day.

CHORUS
