Tell Me That Beautiful Story

Now in the silence of evening,
Now in the sun sets glow,
Tell me that beautiful story
you told me long ago.
Whisper it softly and sweetly;
While the winds murmur near;
It is so long since I've seen you,
Grant me this one wish dear.
Tell me that beautiful story only once again,
Tell me of love and it's glory, tho' I know it is in vain;
Your mem'ry is always before me, with joy my soul to fill,
So tell me that beautiful story, say that you love me still.
When all the world was in darkness,
There was a light in your eyes,
Seeming to beckon me onward
my sad heart's paradise!
Now is my life's incompleteness
Chang'd into joy complete,
And all it's wearisome sorrow,
Now seem divinely sweet.
