My Loved One My Own

By the Moon and Star light in
By the still of midnight in
Which waiseys delight in
I love thee alone
I love thee my dearest
With feelings sincerest
Farthest off thou'rt the nearest
My loved one my own.

True love canna cheat me
Falsehood canna beat me
Yet Mary love meet me
I'm sad and alone
The day's full o' lying
But the last light is dying
And o'er the west flying
There thou still art my own.

The night wind is born brief
Ladybirds i' green corn sleep
The dews on the thorn leaf
Dearest meet for I'm lone
I'm lone love and weary
Where the hazels hang near thee
O come love and cheer me
And make me thy own
