I Look Across The Sea

I walk'd in the lonesome evening

And who so sad as I

When I saw the young men and maidens

Merrily passing by

To thee, my Love, to thee

So fain would I come to thee!

While the ripples fold upon sands of gold

And I look across the sea

I stretch out my hands, who will clasp them

I call, thou repliest no word

O why should heart-longing be weaker

Than the waving wings of a bird

To thee, my love, to thee

So fain, would I come to thee

For the tide's at rest from east to west

And I look across the sea

There's joy in the hopeful morning

There's sorrow with every lover

Whose true love is far away

To thee, my Love, to thee

So fain would I come to thee!

And the water's bright in a still moonlight

As I look across the sea
