The Water is Wide

Song Length 4:07 Genre Unique - Children


The water is wide
I can't cross over
And neither have I wings to fly
Build me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row, my love and I

Oh love is handsome
Love is kind
Bright as a jewel when first it's new
As love grows old
And waxes gold
It lights my way like morning dew

There is a ship
She sails the sea
She's loaded deep as deep can be
But not as deep as my love for you
I do believe in love that's true
