Verse:
 C   Am   G     C
BELOVED, gaze in thine own heart,
  F  C      G  Am
The holy tree is growing there;
   Am   F  G    C
From joy the holy branches start,
  F    C     G      Am
And all the trembling flowers they bear.
  C    Am   G   C
The changing colours of its fruit
   F      C     G   Am
Have dowered the stars with merry light;
  Am F     G   C
The surety of its hidden root
  F    C   G   Am
Has planted quiet in the night;
  F    C   G   Am
The shaking of its leafy head
  F     C      G  Am
Has given the waves their melody,
  F    C    G   Am
And made my lips and music wed,
F      C   G    Am
Murmuring a wizard song for thee.

Bridge:
F G


Verse:
C     Am   G   C
There the Loves a circle go,
  F    C     G  Am
The flaming circle of our days,
Am   F    G   C
Gyring, spiring to and fro
  F      C    G   Am
In those great ignorant leafy ways;
 F     C    G   Am
Remembering all that shaken hair
  F    C     G  Am
And how the wingèd sandals dart,
   F     C    G   Am
Thine eyes grow full of tender care:
 F   C    G     Am
Beloved, gaze in thine own heart.

Verse:
C    Am     G   C
Gaze no more in the bitter glass
  F    C     G   Am
The demons, with their subtle guile,
Am    F    G      C
Lift up before us   when they pass,
  F  C   G   Am
Or only gaze a little while;
  F    C   G   Am
For there a fatal image grows
F    C   G    Am
That the stormy night receives,
F     C   G     Am
Roots half hidden under the snows,
F   C     G     Am
Broken boughs and blackened leaves.
  Am     F    G   C
For all things turn to barrenness
F     C     G   Am
In the dim glass the demons hold,
  Am    F   G  C
The glass of outer weariness,
F     C      G    Am
Made when God slept in times of old.
F         C   G     Am
There, through the broken branches, go
  F   C  C    Am
The ravens of unresting thought;
F    C    G   Am
Flying, crying, to and fro,
F   Cl    G   Am
Cruel claw and hungry throat,
  F     C     G     Am
Or else they stand and sniff the wind,
  F      C   G    Am
And shake their ragged wings; alas!
  F   C     G   Am
Thy tender eyes grow all unkind:
F    C      G   Am
Gaze no more in the bitter glass.

Verse:
 C   Am   G     C
Beloved, gaze in thine own heart,
  F  C      G  Am
The holy tree is growing there;
   Am   F  G    C
From joy the holy branches start,
  F    C     G    Am
And all the trembling branches bear.
 F     C    G   Am
Remembering all that shaken hair
  F    C     G  Am
And how the wingèd sandals dart,
   F     C    G   Am
Thine eyes grow full of tender care:
 F   C    G     Am
Beloved, gaze in thine own heart.
