Though Parted, Still We Love.

There's lands and seas between us,
My loved one, you and I;
I'll ne'er forget when last we met,
Though years have passed us by;
The parting was a sad one-
Alas! it had to be,
That good-bye from you, fair one,
Daunts me far across the sea.
I remember how our precious vow
We pledged to Him above,
And whispered words so soft and low;
Though parted, still we love.
Though parted from my fair one, still I love her,
As sacred as the stars that shine above;
My heart for her alone, she told me she would have no other,
And although we're parted, still we love.
How glad I'd he to meet her,
'Twould be a joyful day;
I have not seen my bright-eyed queen,
I've been so long away.
If she'd come home to-morrow,
I'd welcome her return,
I'd bring back joy for sorrow,
Then my heart would cease to burn;
All my love for you I've kept true blue,
Through foreign, distant shore,
Come take the heart I've kept so true,
I'll love you till life's o'er.-Chorus.
