I kind of like this song myself, not least, perhaps, because of Gerald Massey`s fine lyrics::
O lay thy hand in mine, dear! - We`re growing old ; But Time has brought no sign, dear, that hearts grow cold. `Tis long, long since our new love made life devine, But age enricheth true love like noble wine.
O lean thy life on mine, dear ! `twill shelter thee. Thou wert a winsom vine, dear, on my young tree : And so, till boughs are leafless, and songbirds flown, We`ll twine, then lay us, griefless, together down.
( Gerald Massey, b. 1828 )
transpose it with Sibelius software into a conveniant key –- and sing it together with your spouse when you have been married for forty years, or so.
