Tell me why the stars do shine;
Tell me why the ivy twines.
Tell me why the ocean's blue;
And I will tell you just why I love you.
Because He made the stars to shine;
Because He made the ivy twine.
Because He made the ocean blue;
Because He made you,
That's why I love you!
I really think that He above
Created you for me to love;
He picked you out from all the rest -
Because He knew, dear,
That I'd love you best.
