Long ago sweetheart mine, Roses bloomed as ne'er before, Long ago the world was young For us sweetheart. Fields of velvet, azure skies, Whisp'ring trees and murm'ring stream; Long ago Life spread his wings For us sweetheart. And now that night is near Must God's harvest e'en be reaped, Yet our love, our love shall live For aye sweetheart!
