"In the Eye Abides the Heart"

In The Eye Abides The Heart

 From the German

 In the eye abides the heart.
Every pure and tender feeling,
All emotions worth revealing,
 Through the eyes their charm impart.
 Words are often clothed in guile;
And
For the lips with fear may falter_
E'en confiding smiles may alter_
 Oh! Believe not in a smile!
 'Tis the eye unveils the heart.
Every pure and tender feeling,
All emotions worth revealing
 To the eyes their glow impart.

 If thy bosom heaves a sigh
For a fair and cherished maiden,
Though her voice with love be laden,
 Mark the language of her eye_
 There each impulse of her soul
Beams for thee in truth and candor
There her secret passions wander
 There remain beyond control.
 'Tis the eye unveils the heart
Every pure and tender feeling
All emotions worth revealing
 To the eyes their glow impart.
