I'll Never Forsake You


I am so happy that you love no other but me

All of my life I've tried to win your love you see

And I still wonder if you will be happy with me

When we are married and I've taken you my wife to be


I have waited so long for the words you just said

I always thought that you loved another instead

But you have told me with your own sweet lips so red

And I am waiting for the day when we shall wed


If you should ever forsake me my love I would pray

Take me my maker up in heaven where white angels stay

Cause I could never go on living without you this way

If we are to part I'd rather you take me today


No no I'll never forsake you I'll always be true

And we'll be happy together because I love you

And when I think of us parting sweetheart it runs through my head

If we cant be happy together my love I would rather be dead
