For The Love Of You

If I could don new head and heart
to make you love me true
I'd wear a head with beauty
that it may see me through
I'd don a heart with courage
for my own is far to weak
my eyes would burn celestial fire
but only when we meet
for the love of you

From head to toe I would adorn
encrusted jewels and pearls
my mind I'm sure would not be just
less the knowledge of the worlds
all of this and more besides
I'd change with swift apace
but only if you would enchant me
with your virgin grace
for the love of you.
