Lady Fair


Once I knew a lady fair,
whose eyes were like the sea;
the wind that tossed her golden hair,
inspired true love in me.
Lady fair, O lay fair,
please give your love to me,
your beauty shines forth like the sun,
in radiant majesty.

Kindness was her way with all,
and true gentility;
angels at her feet would fall,
to learn humility.
Lady fair, O lady fair,
please give your love to me;
tell that you will be mine,
and yours I'll always be.

I had joy beyond compare,
when ere she looked at me;
the music in her soul played out
a lilting melody.

Sing to me, O sing to me,
of your abiding love;
it is your enchanted song,
that I am fondest of.

Lady fair, O lady fair,
you’ve overwhelmed my heart;
take me as I am today,
from you I’ll never part.

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
