Oh! the dearest, sweetest lad in all creation
Is my noble Donald, whom I love so well;
And the fairest, sweetest spot in all the nation
Is my little home, so humble, in the dell.
Oh! 'twas there that first we met, and I never shall forget
How his glance did thrill my trembling heart;
And I'd rather bide with him in my low station
Than to be a queen and live from him apart.
Oh! no earthly pain can e'er have power to harm me.
With noble Donald ever at my side;
And no other voice than his has power to charm me;
I'd forever be content with him to bide.
oh! his love my shield shall be, and he's all the world to me,
And I ask no greater joy or bliss;
While in his strong arms I bide, what can alarm me?
Can a lassie ask a greater boon than this!
