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!
