There's a letter in the candle, and it points direct to me;
How the little spark is shining, from whomever can it be?
It gets brighter still and brighter, like a little sunny ray;
And I dare to guess the writer, for it drives suspense away.

Bright spark of hope, shed your beams on me.
And send a loving message, from far across the sea.
Bright spark of hope, shed your beams on me.
And speed the loving message from far across the sea.

Hope and fear alike perplex me, oh! superstitions dread,
How many idle fancies you conjure in my head;
When those we love are absent, how wantonly you play;
Every shadow seems a substance, And drives suspense away.- Chorus.

How gladly I remember, 'tis two short months no more,
since a letter in the candle, shone out as bright before.
Then the darling messenger came prompt and swift to me;
If this is only from the same, how welcome it shall be.-Chorus.
