SONGS OF THE SOLDIERS AND SAILORS. 27 29. MOTHER MACHREE.
(C.)
There's a spot in my heart which no colleen may own; There's a depth in my soul never sounded or known. There's a place in my mem'ry, my life, that you fill, No other can take it, no one ever will.
Sure, I love the dear silver that shines in your hair, And the brow that's all furrowed and wrinkled with
care. I kiss the dear fingers so toil-worn for me, Oh! God bless you and keep you, Mother Machree.

30. A PERFECT DAY,
(A flat.)
"When you come to the end of a perfect day,
And you sit alone with your thought, "While the chimes ring out with a carol gay,
For the joy that the day has brought. Bo you think what the end of a perfect day
Can mean to a tired heart, .When the sun goes down with a flaming ray
And the dear friends have to part?
."Well, this is the end of a perfect day,
Near the end of a journey, too; But it leaves a thought that is big and strong
With a wish that is kind and true. For mem'ry has painted this perfect day
With colors that never fade, And we find at the end of a perfect day
The soul of a friend we've made.
