I'LL REMEMBER YOU, LOVE, IN MY PRAYERS.
When the curtains of night are pinned back by the stars,
And the beautiful moon leaps the skies,
And the dew-drops of heaven are kissing the rose,
It is then that my memory flies.
As If on the wings of some beautiful dove
In haste with the message it bears,
To bring you a kiss of affection, And say:
I'll remember you, love, in my prayers.
Go where you will-on land or at sea,
I'll share all your sorrows and cares;
And at night, when I kneel by my bedside to pray,
I'll remember you, love, In my prayers.
I have loved you too fondly to ever forget
The love you have spoken for me.
And the kiss of affection still warm on my lips,
When you told me how true you would be;
I know not If fortune be fickle or friend,
Or if time on your memory wears;
I know that I love you wherever you roam,
And remember you, love, in my prayers,-Chorus.
When heavenly angels are guarding the good,
As God has ordained them to do,
In answer to prayers I have offered to Him,
I know there is one watching you;
And may its bright spirit be with you through life.
To guide you up heaven's bright stairs.
And meet with the one who has loved you so true.
And remember you, love, In her prayers.-Chorus.
