William McCarthy, 1859

Deal with me kindly,
Cheer my young heart,
I'll follow thee blindly
Wherever thou art,
Deep in the mountain,
Far from my home,
I'll follow thy path
Wherever thou'lt roam.
Thy way shall still be mine,
My heart shall still be thine...
Refrain:
Deal with me kindly,
Cheer my young heart,
I'll follow thee blindly
And never depart.
2. Break not my spirit,
Think of my youth,
Cherish my tender heart,
Doubt not my truth;
Friends may desert thee,
Sorrows may come,
But still in this soul
Thine image will bloom.
Thy hopes with thee I'll share,
Thy wants shall be my care...
Refrain:

3. Though through the desert,
Wand'ring afar,
Still to me, dearest one,
Thou'lt be my star;
Sunlight or moonlight
O'er us may shine,
Yet living on love,
I'll ever be thine.
Thy hand shall be my guard,
Thy rules shall be my word...
Refrain:
