No One to Love.

No one to love, none to caress,
Roaming alone through this world's wilderness;
Sad is my heart, joy is unknown,
For in my heart, joy is unknown,
For in my sorrow, I'm weeping alone;
No gentle voice, no tender smile
Makes me rejoice, or cares beguile.

No one to love, none to caress,
Roaming alone through this world's wilderness;
Sad is my heart, joy is unknown,
For in my sorrow, I'm weeping alone.

In dreams alone, loved ones I see,
And well-known voices then whisper to me;
Sighing I wake, waking I weep:
Soon with the loved and the lost I shall sleep.
Oh! blissful rest! what heart would stay
Unloved, unblessed, from heaven away?

Cho.
No one to love, none to caress,
Roaming alone through this world's wilderness, etc.

No one to love, none to caress,
None to respond to this heart's tenderness!
Trusting I wait. God in his love,
Promise rest in his mansion above:
Oh! bliss in store, oh, joy mine own
There never more to weep alone!

Cho.
No one to love, none to caress,
Roaming alone through this world's wilderness, etc.
