The Song Book
She heard with joy the youth, When he thus far had gone;
She trusted in his truth, And, loving, he went on :
" Yonder thou see'st the sun Shine in the sky so bright,
And when this day is done, Then cometh the dark night,
" No sooner night is not,
But he returns alway, And shines as bright and hot
As on this gladsome day.
" He is no older now
Than when he first was born ; Age cannot make him bow,
He laughs old Time to scorn.
" My love shall be the same,
It never shall decay, But shine without all blame,
Though body turn to clay."
She listened to his song, And heard it with a smile,
And, innocent as young, She dreamed not of guile.
No guile he meant, I ween, For he was true as steel,
As was there after seen,
When she made him her weal.
Full soon both two were wed, And these most faithful lovers,
May serve at board at bed, Example to all others.
Chappell. From William Ballet's Tune Boo
