Their Complete Victor Recordings - 1932-1933 (CD) - The Spirit of Love Watches Over Me lyrics

(A.P. Carter)

-Solo-

Thou art gone from my gaze like a beautiful dream
And I seek there in vain by the meadow and stream
Oft I breathe thy dear name to the winds floating by
But thy sweet voice is mute to my cry

-Solo-

In the stillness of night when the stars smile and shine
My heart fondly holds a co-communion with thine
For I feel thou art near and where e'er I may be
That the spirit of love watches me

-Solo-

Of the birds in the bower my companions I make
Every simple wild flower I prize for their sake
Deep woods and dark clouds can a pleasure impart
For the solace just suits my poor heart

-Solo-

Thou art gone from my gaze and I will not repine
Here alone we shall meet in a home that is thine
For I feel thou art near and where'er I may be
That the spirit of love watches me
