If e’er I needed proof thy love, now do
I have in full. My thanks I give to you.
My Sweet’, ye have been great; I am not blue.
I love thee alway’ true; I nev’ do rue.
Thanks be from me to you. I cannot say
Enough. God sent ye me on that good day.
Ye are the sunshine life for me–a ray
Of happiness supreme! No more I say.
I love thee pure and long—yea, years of twen’-
And eight we have been true to each alway’.
I n’ev ceased loving you. This be no sin.
Ye are the best of life for me all day.
I thank o’r Heav’ for sending you to me.
I do thee love eternity ye see.
