Within my heart there is a letter, a letter written years ago.
And could you, love, but read Its contents, what bitter tears would surely flow;
Since childhood on have I been faithful, your image it does ne'er depart;
Oh, hasten then and ease my sorrow, and read the letter in my heart.

I love no one but you, ever constant and true
I will remain until life does depart:
Come to my arms once more, speak those sweet words of yore,
And read the tender letter in my heart.

The letter in my heart's unopened, though stained by many a loving tear;
on earth there's none could read it better than you, the one my soul to cheer;
With some life's pathway is so radiant, with me, alas, 'tis very dark;
Then come my own and be my sunshine, and read this letter in my heart.- Cho.
