Song Lyric Sunday: The First Time I Saw Your Face

The Song Lyric Sunday prompt for this week is “Time.” As I searched for a song about time, my eyes fell on Roberta Flack’s, The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face. I LOVE Roberta Flack and hearing the song brought back so many memories from the 70’s.

The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face was written by Ewan MacColl in 1957. It was first sung by Peggy Seeger and then by a series of folk singers. Roberta Flack’s version became an international hit in 1972. (Wikipedia)

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

And the first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last ’till the end of time my love
And it would last ’till the end of time

The first time ever I saw your face
Your face, your face

  1. Hey Karuna,

    Grace indeed thank you, the emotion is palpable beautifully sweet in flavour….a song sung with a voice always in-Love. Pure melody and poetry expressed vocally by the Heart in prayer. Very moving, thank you.

    I’ll return to listen to this song at Sun rise in the morning. It would be perfect. And perfect every dawn. Of course, if I am blessed with a cloudless sky tonight and a full moon then I shall listen to it then as well. Thank you Karuna.

    Hoping Sunday is a treat to end your weekend and start your week anew.

    Namaste 🙂
