The sea hath its pearls,
The heaven hath its stars,
But my heart hath its love.
Great are the sea and the heavens;
Yet greater is my heart,
And fairer than pearls and stars
Flashes and beams my love.
Then little youthful maiden,
Come unto my great heart;
My heart, and the sea and the heaven
Are melting away with love.

The sea hath its pearls,
The heaven hath its stars,
But my heart hath its love.
