No. 25 - Song - Bobbie - "The one in the world"

MIDI File

Bobbie: A many maidens sweet and tender,
And fair there are beneath the sun,
But just to claim his life's surrender,
For ev'ry man there is but one!
It doesn't matter what her nation,
She may be British or Burmese;
It doesn't matter what her station,
Love doesn't reckon by degrees.
But that moment you meet her
All life shall seem sweeter,
Diviner, completer,
Illumin'd, Impearl'd,
And your hopes thronging round her,
Shall tell you you've found her,
And in your heart crown'd her
The one in the world!
Just the one,
Just the one in the world!

And she shall walk in perfect beauty,
And she shall counsel higher things;
Ennobling work, endearing duty,
Her hand shall comfort while it clings;
Her eyes be mirrors Heaven-glassing;
And gifts to make a monarch proud,
Her little tender touch in passing,
Her little look across the crowd,
Ah! So dear and so human
As wife and as woman;
An angel for you man —
Her wings she has furl'd
Ah! what price can assess her?
What praise can confess her?
God guard her! God bless her!
The one in the world!
Just the one in the world!
