Words and Music by Joe Hart.

Though you said 'twas best to part, still it nearly broke my heart;
I have tried and I have failed, for my love prevailed;
All your goodness and love so pure made my task more than I could endure;
Do not bid me go again, but with thee, love, remain.

Like a bird that soars up in the sky without a resting-place,
Like a stranger who has lost his guide and his footsteps can't retrace;
Like a flower without sunshine, like a rudderless ship on the sea,
Like a wand'rer alone, without a home, that's what I am without thee.

How I missed your presence near, and your voice I longed to hear;
My life seemed a blank to me, severed, love, from thee.
If my heart could but speak 'twould say, never more from me, my love, stray;
Be my love, my life, my guide, forever by my side.-Chorus.
