The Age-Old Words By Robert Rozhdestvensky, English by Vesper Lynd

Three words as though three burning lights

Will come to you in broad day light

Will run and change your daily course

So big, so great so awesome as the Planet Earth

At night they will still follow you

Three dateless words of “I love you!”

These ancient words can win and sway

And they will take your breath away

And they will take your breath away

Three words eternal as the Spring

Will tie together as a string

They have the power to make eyes agleam

One life, one path one common dream

Through suffering and grief undue

Still whispering the “I love you!”…

These dateless words can win and sway

And they will take your breath away

Three words as though three dawns at once together

So say them out loud and hold me close forever

It’s for a reason that somehow

You understand them only now

They fly to us from far away

To reach the hearts and make our day

These age-old words can win and sway

And they will take your breath away

And they will take your breath away
