Come let me take thee to my breast
written in 1793
Come, let me take thee to my breast, And pledge we ne'er shall sunder; And I shall spurn, as vilest dust, The warld's wealth and grandeur: And do I hear my Jeanie own, That equal transports move her? I ask for dearest life alone That I may live to love her. Thus in my arms, wi' a thy charms, I clasp my countless treasure; I seek nae mair o' Heaven to share, Than sic a moment's pleasure: And by thy een, sae bonie blue, I swear I'm thine for ever! And on thy lips I seal my vow, And break it shall I never!
