Oh, my soul
if I could but take the chains off of you
and set you free. . .
Oh, my heart
if I could but give you away to someone
who would not give you back to me. . .
Oh, my tears
if I could but bottle you up and preserve you
for only moments of delight. . .
Oh, my eyes
if I could but keep you from the darkness of
another night. . .
Oh, my life
if I could but lock you away
and never let you go. . .
but with no tribulation,
happiness I would never know.
