I've a secret in my heart, Sweet Marie
A tale I would impart, love to thee
Every daisy in the dell
Knows my secret, knows it well
And yet I dare not tell Sweet Marie

When I hold your hand in mine, Sweet Marie
A feeling most divine comes to me
All the world is full of Spring
All the warblers on the wing
And I listen while they sing, Sweet Marie

Come to me, Sweet Marie
Sweet Marie, Come to me
Not because your face is fair, love, to see

But your soul, so pure and sweet,
Makes my happiness complete
Makes me falter at your feet, Sweet Marie

In the morn when I awake, Sweet Marie
Seems to me my heart will break, love, for thee
Every wave that shakes the shore
Seems to sing it o'er and o'er
Seems to say that I adore Sweet Marie
When the sunset tints the west, Sweet Marie
And I sit down to rest, love, with thee
Every star that studs the sky
Seems to stand and wonder why
They're so dimmer than your eye, Sweet Marie

Come to me, Sweet Marie
Sweet Marie, Come to me
Not because your face is fair, love, to see

But your soul, so pure and sweet,
Makes my happiness complete
Makes me falter at your feet, Sweet Marie
