Love like the dawn came stealing
Upon a world of night
Unto the soul revealing Light!
New glory touched the morning sky
And tinted field and flower,
O dawn of Love, O dawn of Love,
What splendor gilds thine hour!
O, love that thrills my heart again,
O love that will not die,
Bind me with chains immortal,
Yea, Bind me forever and a day,
Bind me forever and a day,
Nor tell me why! Nor tell me why!
Cadman, Charles Wakefield and Moyle, Gilbert, "Love Like the Dawn Came Stealing" (1917). Historic Sheet Music Collection. 865.
