A Promise O’er A Stream - Said To Be The Old Way Peasants Married, Exchanging Bibles - Two Songs Merged: Abstract Poetry

Poem By Patrick Scott Hogg

Yours am I my lassie fair
Yours, my lovely dearie O;
Every heartbeat I declare;
Every rovin’ fancy, O.
Wind may blaw; sna’ may fa’;
Stars may fade an’ dee:
My love for you outshines them a’,
If you’ll marry me.

Chorus:
Darling will you marry me
Will you say 'I do'?
Darling will you marry me
You know I LOVE YOU.

Night descends tae kiss the morn;
The Robin is wi’ song;
Moments fade but I adorn
You a’ this Winter long.
O lover’s tears; lover’s sighs
The ocean’s ebb an’ flow:
Sun fa’s for the moon tae rise,
An’ roon the seasons go.

Whatever troubles life unfolds
Whatever people say
As constant as the Northern star
I’ll be your night and day:
The Winter brings it’s biting cold;
The North Wind brings her storms
I will bring a ring o’ gold
When summer winds come warm.

The water’s rinnin saft an’ sweet;
Leaves are turnin’ gold;
We’ll say our vows, hand in hand
With a Bible that we hold.
And so it was, by Silver Luce;
Sae fair as fae a dream;
Lo, oor marraige, was in truth
A Promise o’er a Stream!
