The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

Peter, Paul and Mary

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the empty skies, my love
To the dark and the empty skies

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hand
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command, my love
That was there at my command

The first time ever I held you near
And felt your heart beat close to mine
I thought our joy would fill the world
And would last 'til the end of time, my love
And would last 'til the end of time
