Words and Music by William Benson Gray.

Within my heart a secret lies,
A secret that I long to tell,
While fondly gazing in the eyes
Of one whose charms around me dwell;
And though I've often tried to tell the tale,
The hour I've often tried to set.
My heart and courage humbly fail
To say, I love thee, Antoinette.

Sweet Antoinette, the brightest star within my heart, Indeed, you are;
My only thought since first we met, I love alone sweet Antoinette.

I love you, not because you're fair,
Nor for your actions so demure;
I love you, not your joys to share.
But for your soul so good and pure.
In vain I've tried to tell my love to thee.
And when the sun of life has set,
My farewell words to earth will be:
I love but thee, sweet Antoinette. - Refrain.
