For we were known from infancy
Thy father’s hearth was home to me
No selfish love was mine for thee
Unholy and unwise

I am no stranger proud and gay
To win thee from thy home away
And find thee for a distant day
A theme for wasting sights

But soon my love shall be my bride
And happy by our own fireside
My veins shall feel the rosy tide
Which lingering hope denies
