THY LOVE IS BETTER THAN WINE

Thy love is better than wine
O love, I'll build thee a shrine
My love, don't be saturnine

I'll build thee a palace of jade
And every command be obeyed
May darling's foundation is laid

Thy love is better than wine
I'll grow tender grapes on the vine
My darling, won't you please recline

I'll build thee a ship for the sea
We'll name it My Sweet Cybele
My darling, O say you'll agree

Thy love is better than wine
Thy face shall e'er be divine
And here be a jewel crystalline
