He Moved Through The Fair
Traditional, arr. Cara Luft

My love said to me “My mother won’t mind

And my father won’t slight you for your lack of kind.”

He laid his hand on me and this he did say

“It will not be long, Love, till our wedding day.”

He went away from me and he moved through the fair
And slowly I watched him move here and move there

He made his way homeward with one star awake

Like a swan in the evening moves over the lake

Last night I dreamt that my lover came in

He came in so sweetly, his feet made no din

He stepped up beside me and this he did say

“It will not be long, Love, till our wedding day.”
