THE LOVE OF LOVES.
Copyright, 1892, by Julian Jordan.
Words and Music by Julian Jordan.
Love, sweet love, love is the poet's dream;
In ev'ry land, in ev'ry tongue, love Is the poet's theme.
We know its pow'r, it's all resistless sway;
Not breadth of seas, nor distance vast, the power of love can stay.
Thine is the love of loves-thine is the heart so true;
Such is the love that thou giv'st me; such is the love I give you.
Oceans may roll between; mountains and valleys divide,
Yet I am with thee where'er thou may'st be; constant whate'er may betide;
Thine is the love of loves; thine, yes forever thine.
Changeless still, thro' all the drift of years;
Thro' all the shifting scenes of life; thro' all its joy and tears.
Changless still-fixed as the stars above;
Forever constant, firm and true-this is the love of loves.
Thine is the love of loves, etc.
