Lyrics

I love thee, I love thee
'tis all that I can say
It is my vision in the night,
my dreaming in the day
The very echo of my heart
the blessing when I pray
I love thee, I love thee
'tis all that I can say

I love thee, I love thee
'tis ever on my tongue
In all my proudest poesy
That chorus still is sung
It is the verdict of my eyes
Amidst the gay and young
I love thee, I love thee
A thousand maids among

I love thee, I love thee
thy bright and hazel glance
The mellow lute upon those lips
Whose tender tones entrance
But most dear heart of hearts thy proofs
That still those words enhance
I love thee, I love thee
whatever be thy chance
