SOFTLY MY LOVE
as recorded by Della Reese
with orchestra conducted by Glenn Osser
Softly my love I sing my song,
And every note that echoes through the night lies straight to you,
Carrying the message my heart cries to you,
"Come to me,come to me, come to me!"
And as the words find you, my love,
Let them become the stepping stones that lead you back to me.
And when at last your arms have found me,
Mighty chords will sound around me
And crescendo till we two are one,
And then we'll know,
In our hearts we'll know
That this melody will always be our song!
