about

Elizabeth Batts contemplates being married to a the man she admires but has misgivings about spending the rest of her life with a husband who will often be in harm’s’ way and will be away at sea for long periods of time.

lyrics

Too Soon
(Music: John Saclausa; Lyrics: Frederick McKinnon)

IS IT TOO SOON
FOR ME TO LOVE
A MAN AS BOLD AND BRAVE AS HE?
IN ALL THE WORLD I’VE NOT MET ONE
WHO CAN BE SO PRECIOUS TO ME

IS IT UNWISE
FOR ME TO LOVE
A HUSBAND SO OFTEN AT SEA?
ALONE WITH MY PRAYERS AND MY FEARS
IS THAT WHAT MY MARRIAGE SHOULD BE?

BUT OUR LOVE CAN BE . . .
THE SUNRISE OF MY MORNING
THE SUNSHINE OF MY NOON
THE AMBER OF MY SUNSET
THE CANDLE OF MY NIGHT

IS IT NOT UNWISE
TO CURB MY LOVE
FOR THE SOUL I MOST ADMIRE?
FOOLISH OR NOT, MY CHOICE IS CLEAR
LOVING HIM IS MY ONE DESIRE

OUR LOVE CAN BE
THE SUNRISE OF MY MORNING
THE SUNSHINE OF MY NOON
THE AMBER OF MY SUNSET
THE CANDLE OF MY NIGHT
