Lover I long for your embrace
For your caress
With your tender touch and loving arms
You envelop me to such comfort and joy
Your lips so sweet and seriously sensuous
Such passion and fire
My love what shall I fair? Your fancy or foe?
Your tender hands melt into mine
Your devotion encompasses me and imprints my heart
My soul is left to no avail
My lover I must conclude and conceal this hymn with a kiss
