Believe Me If All

Traditional Irish Aire w. words by Thomas Moore
As performed by Allison Crowe

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 loveliness fade as it will,
And around 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 cheeks unprofaned by a tear,
That the fervour and faith of a soul can be known,
to which time has but made thee more dear

No, the heart which has truly loved never forgets,
But, as truly, loves on to the close,
As the sun-flower turns to her god, when he sets,
The same look which she gave when he rose.
