Lyrics

With feeling but not too slow


I'll watch for thee from my lonely bow'r
come o'er the sea at the twilight hour
Come when the day passes away
Come when the nightingale sings on the tree.
Come and remove doubts of my love
But if thou lov'st me not come not to me
Come and remove doubts of my love
But if thou lov'st me not come not to me

Why did'st thou say I was brighter far
Than the bright ray of the ev'ning star
Why didst thou come seeking my home
Till I believed that thy vows were sincere
Oh if thy vow wearies thy now
Tho' I may weep for thee never come here.
