Late have I loved you,
Beauty so ancient, so new.
Late have I loved you
You were within me,
but I was outside you

And it was there that I searched for you
It was there that I searched for you

Late have I loved you,
Beauty so ancient, so new.
Late have I loved you
You were here with me
but I was not with You

And it was there that you found me
It was there that you found me

You called and you shouted,
you broke through my deafness.
You flashed and you shone,
dispelled my blindness.
You breathed your fragrance on me
You breathed your fragrance on me
Late have I loved you
Late have I loved you

You called and you shouted,
you broke through my deafness.
You flashed and you shone,
dispelled my blindness.
You breathed your fragrance on me
You breathed your fragrance on me

I drew in your breath
And I keep on breathing
I've tasted I’ve seen
And now I want more
'cause You breathed your fragrance on me
You breathed your fragrance on me
Late have I loved you
Late have I loved you
