Dearest, the shades of night appear
Bells of the temple ringing clear,
While I sing songs of love’s devotion,
Filled with dreams of you.

CHORUS:
Rose of Palestine,
Say that you’ll be mine–
My heart’s calling, ever calling,
I love you Thru each fleeting hour, oh, fairest flow’r,
Come let the love-light shine
In your eyes divine,
Shades of night seem to beckon me,
Back to you far across the sea,
Rose of Palestine.

Drifting in dreams tho’ far apart
Mem’ries awake deep in my heart,
Carry me back to love’s own garden
Where I first met you:

Palestine (pre-1948)
