I SPOKE not a word as I waited, I waited the whole day long, And just as I tired of waiting He came to me with a song.


I gave not a sign as I waited, Just stood by the window pane, And just as the evening ended, He walked to me up the lane.


I gave not a smile as I waited, I lifted my head so high, And just as the smile was dawning, He came to me out of the sky.


I thought no more of my waiting, Just bent my head to his hand. Never now do I tire of smiling, He talks to me where I stand.
