Nos. 27 & 28 - Recit and Song - "All the Wealth."

MIDI file

Doris: I thank you for your gifts and courtesies,
For all the loyalty that in them lies,
And yet I seek for that I cannot find,
A gift surpassing all the rest combined.
I pray you deem me not of greedy mind,
For what is wealth when love doth lag behind?
What joy can gems of untold price impart
That cannot buy the love of one true heart!
Martin: That heart, fair queen, I bring.
Doris: It is Martin!
   
Martin: All the wealth of all the world's love decline;
Light doth vainly from the crystal facet shine.
No gold, no stone, no spice,
No gem can pay the price
Of love, which is immortal, priceless and divine,
Love immortal, priceless and divine.

Earth can yield no gift so rare,
No stone so fair;
East and West their utmost wealth shall not combine.
No gold, no stone, no spice,
No gem can pay the price
Of love, which is immortal, priceless and divine,
Love immortal, priceless and divine.
