Softly as in a morning sunrise / The light of love comes Softly as in a morning sunrise The light that gave you glory Will take it all away. Softly, as in a morning sunrise The light of love comes stealing Into a new born day, oh Flaming with all the glow of sunrise A burning kiss is sealing The vow that all betray For the passions that thrill love And lift you high to heaven Are the passions that kill love And let you fall to hell So ends the story Softly, as in an evening sunset Softly as in a morning sunrise The light of love comes stealing Into a newborn day Flaming with all the glow of sunrise A burning kiss is sealing A vow that all betray.
