Here, at your feet, I pledge my devotion;
I am your slave And you are my queen;
'Tis new to me. this sacred emotion-
I am yours only, sweet Adeline.
Oft my heart pined for some one to cherish,
Oft my soul sighed for solace serene;
Until I saw you my life was lonely,
Until I met you. sweet Adeline;
Until I loved you, sweet Adeline.
I never loved until I met you:
I never thought a heart could be so true;
Nothing can come between my love and my heart's queen;
I never loved until I met you, Adeline.
Joy fills my heart, for your eyes are beaming,
Beaming with love on me, oh, my queen;
Do not wake me if I am but dreaming,
Dreaming of bliss with my Adeline;
Cling to me close, love, life will be brighter;
No saddened thought can e'er intervene;
You are my idol, my heart is lighter,
Now you are mine, my sweet Adeline,
And I am thine, my sweet Adeline.-Refrain.
