I LOVE, I LOVE HER SO.

Words by J. H. Wagner. Music by Gustavo Kerker.
Bear her my message, gentle breeze, and breathe it soft and low;
Murmuring music, 'mid the trees, oh! say, "I love her so!"
Birds, as ye speed on swiftest wing, oh, say my heart's aflame;
'Let all the joyous songs ye sing echo her dear name:
Take this message now to mine own, say I love but her, her alone.
For she's all my heart's delight; she is my queen;
Darkest of days seem bright with her, I ween;
Only one thought have I, as on thro' life I go'tis that, with heart and sum, I love, I love her so.
Ye blossoms, shed your perfume rare where'er my darling goes;
She who is like the lily fair and sweet as a rose;
Oh, dancing rays of noon-day sun, oh, pave her path with gold;
Pure as the love, for her alone, my heart doth hold,
Take this message now to mine own, etc.
