Cling to my heart my lover

Through all the hours of night

And together let us battle

Against the dawning light.

Armed with fragrant garlands,

Arrayed in naked steel,

O how we’ll thrust and parry

And with a kiss we’ll seal

Our articles of empire

In a glittering embrace

When the union of our kingdoms

Will bring us face to face,

And from that time all shall see

The glorious light of you and me.
