There was a time, my love, my heart had grown cold
My arms were reaching out for someone to hold
I was all mired in gloom, and I was alone
Then you took ahold of me, and made me your own

You pulled me up where I belong
Though at first it seemed so wrong
To be scaling love’s great heights
Basking freely in its light

I’d forgotten the things I knew inside to be true
Trials were everywhere and pleasures were few
I drifted along in the ocean of life
But then you pulled me, dear, from the waters of strife

You dragged me out from the abyss
With a whisper, with a kiss
Out into the light of love
That shown down on us from above

Speak to me darling in hushed tones
Tell me your heart’s true desire
Look far back into my eyes
Now we are in this together

There was a dearth in me, there was a lack
I could not see my heart, but feared it was black

You pulled me up where I belong
Though at first it seemed so wrong
To be scaling love’s great heights
Basking freely in its light
You dragged me out from the abyss
With a whisper, with a kiss
Out into the light of love
That shone down on us from above

Speak to me darling in hushed tones
Tell me your heart’s true desire
Look far back into my eyes
Now we are in this together

You pulled me up where I belong
Though at first it seemed so wrong
To be scaling love’s great heights
Basking freely in its light
You dragged me out from the abyss
With a whisper, with a kiss
Out into the light of love
That shone down on us from above
