"Lover's Return" lyrics

Lover's Return

And so
You have come back to me
And say
The old love's growing yet
You tried
Through all these weary years
You tried
Too vainly to forget

Oh, no
I cannot take your hand
God never gives us back our youth
The loving heart you slighted then
Was yours, my friend
In perfect truth

Come close
And let me see your face
Your raven hair is tinged with snow
Oh, yes
It is the same dear face
I loved
So many years ago

Oh, no
I cannot take your hand
God never gives us back our youth
The loving heart you slighted then
Was yours, my friend
In perfect truth

Farewell
I think I love you yet
As friend to friend
God bless you, dear
And guide
You through these weary years
To where
The skies are always clear

Oh, no
I cannot take your hand
God never gives us back our youth
The loving heart you slighted then
Was yours, my friend
In perfect truth

Oh, no
I cannot take your hand
God never gives us back our youth
The loving heart you slighted then
Was yours, my friend
In perfect truth
