SAD and lost I walked where wide
And treacherous the roadways are.
Your dear hand was still my guide.

Pale on the horizon far
A frail hope of day was shed.
Your glance was my morning-star.

No sound but his own echoing tread
Brightened the poor wanderer's thought.
Your voice spoke of hope ahead.

My heart with gloom and terror fraught
Wept at the melancholy sight;
Love the exquisite victor brought

Us to each other in delight.
