I know you only by your tears ...
I felt them falling on my face.
I had wakened on a hush of dark,
And lay I knew not in what place.

O lady, not a dream was mine!
Despair had told the truth to me,
And I was fearful of life's call,
And bitter with my destiny.

But the warm touches of your soul
Guided me to the darkened years.
Sweet reconciler of my days,
I know you only by your tears.
