The Drunkard's Hell
I then went home to change my life And see my long neglected wife. I found her weeping o'er the bed Because her infant babe was dead.
I told her not to mourn and weep Because her babe had gone to sleep; Its happy soul had fled away To dwell with Christ till endless day.
I taken her by her pale white hand, She was so weak she could not stand; I laid her down and breathed a prayer That God might bless and save her there.
I then went to the Temperance hall And taken a pledge among them all. They taken me in with a willing hand And taken me in as a temperance man.
So seven long years have passed away Since first I bowed my knees to pray; So now I live a sober life With a happy home and a loving wife.
