LET ME GO.
Q79
But the agedó0, the aged ! How sad they weep alone, "When earthly ties are riven,
And earthly hopes are flown !
Whene'er my way looks dismal, And hard my lot appears,
I'll think of that sad evening, And of that old man's tears.
*.
LET ME GO. Let me go! my heart is weary
Of this world of sin and care ; Cheerless looks my way, and dreary, Dangers thick are gathering there ; Clouds of gloom are rising yonder,
There the winds in madness blowó Wherefore should I longer wander ? Let me go!
Let me go ! this fond affection May not chain my soul to dust,
Though I find by close inspection Here I 've placed too firm a trust:
Let me now these fond ties sever, While the tears in sadness flowó
0, it will not be forever! Let me go!
