Words by Fred M. Spotswood. Music by Harry A. Saxton.

Whisper, gentle maiden, that you love me true,
For my heart has left me, it has gone to you;
As I wander lonely in the silent night,
Thoughts of you, my darling, fill me with delight;
When away from you, love, life is hard to bear,
Then my heart is breaking with its load of care.
In the evening's gloaming, "neath the starlit skies,
I am fondly dreaming, darling, of your eyes.

Whisper, love; whisper, love; whisper sweet and low;
Raise your eyes, why those sighs? tell me ere I go;
Hearts like yours and mine, love, should be made as one,
For it was so intended, darling, when the world begun.

Now I hear the murmur of the evening breeze,
Like a distant wailing, sighing through the trees,
Voices seem to whisper words of love to me
From my absent darling, whom I long to see;
Yet I fancy, loved one, in that message sweet
That your thoughts are spoken and our hearts must meet;
Hearts like yours and mine, love, should be made as one.
It was, so intended when the world begun.-Refrain.

Now the earth is silent, stars their vigil keep,
Roses kissed by dewdrops, bow their heads and weep,
Now I sit beside you, looking in your eyes.
Eyes so full of beauty, love and glad surprise:
I would have you tell me that your heart is mine.
Not with boisterous Words, love, but with gentle sign,
Sign which none would see, love, none beside we two,
I would have you whisper, "darling, I'll be true."-Ref.
