The World Is Waiting For The Sunrise

Down in the lazy west rides the moon,
Warm as a night in June,
Stars shimm'ring soft in a bed of blue,
While I am calling and calling you:
Sweetly you are dreaming,
As the dawn comes slowly streaming,
Waken love in your bower,
Greet our trysting hour
Dear one The World is waiting for the sunrise;
Ev'ry rose is heavy with dew.
The thrush on high, his sleepy mate
is calling and my heart is calling you!
