Thompson, Clara Ann
Songs From the Wayside

- OH LIST TO MY SONG!

OH LIST TO MY SONG!



Oh list to my song, my sweet, dark eyed
dove!
Oh list to thy lover today!
For I've come from afar, to woo thee
again,
Though, erstwhile, you sent me away.

But I heard thy sighs in my troubled
dreams,
And methought they were sighs of pain;
So I've come, I've come on the wings of
of my love,
To offer my true heart again.

Oh say that my heart has not hoped in
vain!
Oh tell me the sweet dream was true!
And lift those dark lashes, oh sweet love
of mine,
And hide not thine eyes from my view.

Oh love, those dear eyes are telling the
tale,
That thy lips refuse to repeat!
Come thou, to my heart; thou art mine,
thou art mine,
Till time and eternity meet!
