Oh, Tender Love

[ Franz Liszt, "Liebestraume, No. 3" ]

Oh, tender love, so beautiful and precious,

conceal not this noble song.

Oh, gayful love, so wonderful and strong,

reveal where our hearts belong.

We dream of gay freedom,

that someday it might come.

Arise!  Awaken!

Do not weep in your sleep;

how many times must I firmly embrace you:

you're fine ... generous lover mine.

Oh, tender love, so bountiful and gracious,

with nobody else could I ever belong.

Oh, gayful love, so purposeful and strong,

affectionately sing our song.

We yearn for gay freedom,

oh yes, and someday it shall come.

Arise!

Awaken from your slumber!

There's nothing to fear if you shed a tear;

so cry all night ... it's alright.

Gay tears, copious in number!

No one can ever be found who is any humbler.

I want you to know that I'm right here,

to wipe away your fear, your each and ev'ry tear.

Oh, tender love, so beautiful and precious,

to ourselves we do belong.

Oh, gayful love, so wonderful and strong:

... our song ... prolong ...

and always carry on.

I have kissed your face clear

of each and ev'ry tear.
