YOUR ADORABLE FACE
Most people know the song, but what are the familiar lyrics, and where did it come from?
Here is the information.
With a Song in My Heart
Lyrics by Lorenz Hart; music by Richard Rogers
[From the 1929 Rogers and Hart musical "Spring Is Here". It was also the title song in the 1952 movie about the singer Jane Froman who entertained troops during World War II although she had been crippled in a plane crash. Susan Hayward played the part, but Miss Froman sang the song for the soundtrack.]
With a song in my heart
I behold your adorable face.
Just a song at the start
but it soon is a hymn to your grace.
When the music swells
I’m touching your hand
It tells me you’re standing near, and ..
At the sound of your voice
heaven opens its portals to me.
Can I help but rejoice
that a song such as ours came to be?
But I always knew
I would live life through
with a song in my heart for you.
I think Andy and Jan could sing this song to each other. Three books of the four-book Jan Duffy romance series are available. The fourth will publish by end of 2013. You’ll want to read their love story.
