Words and Music by Paul Dresser.

I stood last night on the dear old spot where we met long ago.
Where we pledged love eternal, that spot we both well know;
I gazed up at the shining stars, And one gem caught mine eye.
It was the same bright "Northern star "that shone on you and I;
Again I saw the sweet face that nestled on my breast,
While shades of night hung o'er us, sweet birds had gone to rest;
Again the tears came to mine eyes, it seemed like yesterday;
Again we vowed eternal love beneath that star's bright ray.

Only a dear little star, bringing back dreams of the past.
Shining in bright sunny climes as well as In winter's blasts.
Shedding its light on the rich and lowly from up in the sky;
Only that same little star that shone on you and I.

I saw you in your loveliness, in all that word implies;
I saw love's own affection beam out your love-lit eyes;
We told how we'd be; faithful, and we thought it not amiss
To pledge our love by that bright star, and seal it with a kiss;
May troubles ne'er beset us, may sorrow never come,
May we love one another until life's task is done;
When old age overtakes us, And we see the end afar.
Then, as in life, both hand and band we'll sail to you bright star.-Cho.
