I LOVE YOU - WITHOUT REASON


REASON…THE CAPTAIN OF MY SHIP

HAS STEERED ME THROUGH

THE MOST VICIOUS WINDS

AND STIFFENING GALES.

REASONS…THE CAPTAIN OF MY SHIP

HAS TAKEN ME OVER

THE MOUNTAIN WALLS

OF OCEAN AND SEAS.

REASON…THE CAPTAIN OF MY SHIP

HAS GUIDED MY WAY IN

THE DARKEST NIGHTS

AND BRIGHTEST DAYS.

REASON…THE CAPTAIN OF MY SHIP

HAS NEVER LED ME TO

THE ISLAND SHORES

OF YOUR LOVE.
