OH, DOUBTING HEART, HOPE ON.
Copyright, 1889, by Chas. D. Blake & Co.
Written and Composed by Harry Pepper.

How many years with hopes and fears have I this moment sought,
For close at hand I see the land with many changes wrought;
And as we near the shore my fear is strangely mixed with pain,
For something greets my ear, and speaks, we shall not meet again.
Oh, doubting heart, hope on, hope on, for she was ever true,
I pray that you are waiting, waiting for your lover to come to you;
Oh, doubting heart, hope on, hope on, for she was ever true,
I pray that you are waiting, waiting for your lover to come to you.

But truth It was no fancy, for as T sprang on shore.
That blessed face was absent, a stranger missive bore;
Bidding me follow quickly and join her on the golden shore,
Where doubts and fears and partings would cease forever more.
Oh, doubting heart, hope on, hope on, for she was ever true,
I pray that you are waiting, waiting for your lover to come to you;
Oh, doubting heart, hope on, hope on, for she was ever true,
I pray that you are waiting, waiting for your lover to come to you.
