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

1st Couplet
Bm A BmUpon a darkened night
G D G Athe flame of love was burning in my breast
Bm A BmAnd by a lantern bright
G D G A DI fled my house while all in quiet rest
2nd Couplet
Bm G DShrouded by the night
G D G D Aand by the secret stair I quickly fled
Bm G DThe veil concealed my eyes
Bm G D A Dwhile all within lay quiet as the dead
Bm A BmOh night thou was my guide
Bm G D A Bmoh night more loving than the rising sun
Bm G DOh night that joined the lover
Dto the beloved one
Bm G D A Dtransforming 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 BmI lost myself to him
G D G Aand laid my face upon my lovers breast
Bm A BmAnd care and grief grew dim
G D G A Das in the mornings mist became the light
Bm G D A BmThere they dimmed amongst the lilies fair
Bm G D A BmThere they dimmed amongst the lilies fair
Bm G D A DThere they dimmed amongst the lilies fair.
