‘Twas Love — not me –

'Twas Love -- not me --‘Twas Love — not me –
Oh punish — pray –
The Real one died for Thee –
Just Him — not me –

Such Guilt — to love Thee — most!
Doom it beyond the Rest –
Forgive it — last –
‘Twas base as Jesus — most!

Let Justice not mistake –
We Two — looked so alike –
Which was the Guilty Sake –
‘Twas Love’s — Now Strike!

Not probable — The barest Chance –

Not probable -- The barest Chance --Not probable — The barest Chance –
A smile too few — a word too much
And far from Heaven as the Rest –
The Soul so close on Paradise –

What if the Bird from journey far –
Confused by Sweets — as Mortals — are –
Forget the secret of His wing
And perish — but a Bough between –
Oh, Groping feet –
Oh Phantom Queen!
