THE HARBOR LIGHT.
Copyright, 1888, by Geo. M. Klenk & Co.
Words by John F. Lawler. Music by John Levy.

Far out at sea on a winter's night
A gleam came from the harbor light,
And from the shrouds where I was lashed
I saw that light as it beamed and flashed;
It made me think of one at home
That prays for me wherever I roam;
Bright light still burn while the billows roar,
And guide me safely back to shore.

Chorus.
Harbor light, shine out for me, spread your rays far o'er the sea;
Let me by your beacon-light shape my course through darkest night.
Harbor light, shine out for me, spread your rays far o'er the sea;
Let me by your beacon-light shape my course through darkest night.

Far o'er the deep and the stormy sea
A lovine, sweet face waits for me,
And, like the rays of the harbor light.
Her dark-blue eyes shine clear and bright;
The memory of those haunting eyes,
I see like beacons brightly rise,
To cast their light o'er the narrow path
That leads me from the tempest's wrath.- Chorus.

The Flowers Will Come in May.

Oh, sweetheart, don't be sighing, the winter won't be long;
Soon merry birdlings crying will glad the earth with song.
For though it be December, and dark and drear the day.
Be cheerful, and remember the flowers will come in May.

Chorus.
The flowers will come in May, sweet flowers bloom in May,
And hearts now sad shall then be glad, when the flowers come in May.

Oh, sweetheart, so with sorrow-the winter of the heart-
Some golden, fair to-morrow will see it all depart,
And love's own birds be singing their carols sweet and gay,
With wedding bells a-ringing, when the flowers come in May.- Chorus.
