My eyes being prisoners take delight,
In the sunshine each morning brings.
As I receive your love within my sight,
Taking pride in the song my heart sings.
As jewels and riches are weighed in worth,
More than most anything in this world,
I find no essence laid upon this earth,
As my sweet love, yes my hearts pearl.
Unique in beauty as the sun which sets,
And the greatest thief of worldly times,
She captured my heart making prisoner
My eyes, of her beauty wonderfully divine.
And as I speak are my eyes not blessed this day,
By her sweet spirit of love that will never fade.
Which causes me daily to live within its glory,
While a faithful and willing prisoner I am made.
