Lover's Lament Lyrics


As the dark holy night creeps around me
In silence I kneel down in tears
Many sound sleeping souls do surround me
As my thoughts wander back many years

And with a young girl I am roaming
And speaking of treasures divine
We kiss and caress in the gloaming
She was nobody’s darling but mine

I gaze into her eyes at twilight
Years of happiness then I could see
Her smile sparkled bright in the star light
Oh why was she taken from me?

That night when you told me in kindness
That your eye sight was failing and then
You spent your last days in sheer blindness
My heart broke to ne’er mend again

No one was more kind or more sweeter
She longed to be queen of a home
I pray that some day I shall meet her
In that far off wonderful home

Oh dear lord of justice in heaven
Oh hear me as I humbly pray
Ever linger with my dearest darling
‘Till I meet her up yonder some day
