My First Love

Thou started loving me
I knew not even myself
It was thee who parted me
For love's sake from thyself

With sweet drops of nectar
Thou made my life sweet
And kissed me on first meet
Oh! How much I loved thee
How could a dumb then utter
But this heart would sweetly beat

O my very first love of life!
I seek thy love in every strife
And when in pain I only whisper
I have a Mother my own Mother
