When first I gazed at your perfect face,
Was proof enough of God?s kind grace,
When heaven bound I?ll one day be,
A happy heart will soar with me.
For, I never loved enough this world,
And love received - too quick - did part,
'Till I fell in love with a beautiful soul,
And learned through her to give my heart.
For too little time is had on Earth,
My life, too short to live,
My life on Earth had little worth,
For I had too much love to give.
