1. Have you not seen the timid tear|
Steal trembling from mine eye?
Have you not mark'd the flush of fear,
Or caught the murmur'd sigh?
2. And can you think my love is chill,
Nor fix'd on you alone?
And can you rend, by doubting still,
A heart so much your own?
3. To you my soul's affections move|
Devoutly, warmly, true:
My life has been a task of love,
One long, long thought of you.
4. If all your tender faith is o'er,
If still my truth you'll try;
Alas! I know but one proof more
I'll bless your name, and die!
