Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms

Irish Song Lyrics - Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young CharmsAuthor: Thomas Moore

Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms
which I gaze on so fondly today
were to change by tomorrow and fleet in my arms
like fairy gifts fading away
Thou wouldst still be adored
as this moment thou art
let thy lovliness fade as it will
and arounf the dear ruin each wish of my heart
would entwine itself verdantly still

it is not while beauty and youth are thine own
and thy cheek unprofaned by a tear
that the fervor and faith of a sould can be known
to which time will but make thee more dear
oh the heart that has loved never truly forgets
but as truly lives on to the close
as the sunflower turns on her God as He sets
the same look that she gave when He rose
