Such is the soul’s piety

Its troth pledged ever to the deity

That worldly love, dearest of dear unto itself

Shouldst pulse with a rapturous joy that such would seem

As though ‘twere flowing o’er the mountain like some quickening stream

And stirreth so the heart, as shouldst itself bequeath

Devotion, nor make to bow its head

Before our dear beloved Savior, to whom our oaths are said

Nor fall shy of the reach of love’s e’er present sway

Counting as we must, lovelorn, long moments to each day

Hide not, if love is beckoning on your lips

Or taken capture of your burning heart

Hide not your joys nor in them shadows cloak

Nor let such deep-held passions soon depart

Come hither, come hither, come hither

The soul needs make its way

Come into my arms, my dearest

That we might run away

Come into my arms, my darling

For quickly we must hie

The shadow casts its figure

As eventide comes nigh

Love lasts not forever

Leave us seize its treasures soon

The clouds are scudding ‘cross the sky

And shadows die at noon

Yes, the clouds are scudding ‘cross the sky

And shadows die at noon
