Lyrics

Ah! Dearest once more returning,
Renew thy faithful love to me,
The entire world then spurning
A shield to thee I'll be.
Ah! dearest once more returning
With those fond looks serene,
Thy heart new life confering
My home and heaven will have
Heaven will have within.

Ah! dearest once more returning,
Renew thy faithful love to me,
The entire world then spurning
A shield to thee I'll be.
Ah! dearest once more returning
With those fond looks serene
My life to thy heart turning its earth
and heaven will have
heaven will have within.

Ah! smile once more as in that happy hour
When to thee this heart resign'd its power
in that hour as in that hour
Ah! smile once more as in that happy hour
When to thee this heart resign'd its power
in that hour in that hour ah when ah when
this heart resign'd its power ah smile once more.
