I Ask the Evening Star

The Evening Star, Jean Baptiste Camille Corot

I look up so very far

And then I ask the evening star

Twinkling high above the clouds

Peeping out within a shroud

Of mystery to talk with me

And hear my plea of destiny

This aged tree that holds my tears

Has brought me comfort through the years

And heard my songs upon the wind

That blew her boughs and now she bends

Yet once again to hear my call

My song of hope my all-in-all

Again I send up to the breeze

That gently stirs her fallen leaves

A maiden’s song a whispered prayer

That my true love will always care

I lift my hand and promise now

I swear by holy solemn vow

That all my life I will love you

And to this love I will be true

The hills the flowers the open sky

The flock that gently saunters by

Bear witness to the melody

That I now sing beneath this tree

And as I gaze toward evening star

I wish to be right where you are
