Intro: The first couplet's chords can be used as an intro.

1st Couplet
Bm     A        Bm
Upon a darkened night
   G        D        G                A
the flame of love was burning in my breast
Bm       A       Bm
And by a lantern bright
  G      D            G      A      D
I fled my house while all in quiet rest

2nd Couplet
Bm       G      D
Shrouded by the night
G          D       G      D        A
and by the secret stair I quickly fled
Bm           G        D
The veil concealed my eyes
Bm           G    D       A       D
while all within lay quiet as the dead

Chorus
Bm           A       Bm
Oh night thou was my guide
Bm            G      D         A     Bm
oh night more loving than the rising sun
Bm            G          D
Oh night that joined the lover
          D
to the beloved one
Bm           G       D      A      D
transforming each of them into the other

 Upon that misty night
in secrecy, beyond such mortal sight
Without a guide or light
than that which burned so deeply in my heart

That fire t'was led me on
and shone more bright than of the midday sun
To where he waited still
it was a place where no one else could come

Chorus

Within my pounding heart
which kept itself entirely for him
He fell into his sleep
beneath the cedars all my love I gave
And by the fortress walls
the wind would brush his hair against his brow
And with its smoothest hand
caressed my every sense it would allow

Chorus

 Bm     A        Bm
I lost myself to him
     G       D     G              A
and laid my face upon my lovers breast
 Bm            A        Bm
And care and grief grew dim
  G        D        G      A        D
as in the mornings mist became the light

Bm           G       D         A      Bm
There they dimmed amongst the lilies fair

Bm          G       D          A       Bm
There they dimmed amongst the lilies fair

Bm          G       D          A      D
There they dimmed amongst the lilies fair.
