Love, Let Your Heart Be Faithful.
Copyright, 1887, by F. Harding.
Good-bye, she said to her sailor boy,
As the tears stood in her eyes,
I'll think of you when you're far away,
With the love that never dies;
My fears shall rise at the angry skies,
And the howling of the wind;
Oh. love, she cried, let your heart be true
To the girl you leave behind.
Love, let your heart be faithful,
Ever the same to me.
Life will be sad without you
"When you are far at sea;
How I shall count the days and hours,
Living in hope and pain,
Knowing no rest, dearest and best.
Until you return again, again.
He kissed the tears from her weeping eyes.
And he tore himself away.
Her form alone on the bench he saw
In the fast declining day.
The years rolled on, but he ne'er returned,
Still her love is pure and strong,
Tho' her eyes are dim, still she prays for him,
And she sings this tender song:- Chorus.
