Wedded Once, but Parted Now.
 Copyright, 1891. by Richard A. Saalfleld.
 Words by Geo. Cooper. Music by M. E. Cooper.

 Glad the bells that once were ringing in the golden happy past,
 Still to them sweet memories bringing, dreams of joy too frail to last;
 Then they vowed no more to sever, sad the thought And light the vow.
 Distant ways they roam forever, wedded once, but parted now ;
 Through life to meet as strangers still. no more to speak love's gentle vow.
 Alas! for hearts that pride has severed-if wedded once, but parted now!
 Alas! for hearts that pride has severed-If wedded once, but parted now.

 Gone is all the sweet affection, gone the joys of other days;
 Naught is left but recollection, love's bright rose at last decays;
 Yet methinks two hearts are yearning, oft in tears their spirits bow;
 Oh! that bitter thought returning, wedded once, but parted now,
 A life to meet as strangers still, no more to speak love's gentle vow.
 Alas! for hearts that pride has severed-if wedded once, but parted now!
 Alas! for hearts that pride has severed-if wedded once, but parted now.

 Cold and stern is now their greeting, smiles may hide a broken heart.
 Pride oft hinders souls from meeting, oh! to love and then to part;
 Every thought of love divided, broken every tender vow,
 Like two streams for aye divided, wedded once, but parted now;
 A life to meet as strangers still, no more to speak love's gentle vow.
 Alas! for hearts that pride has severed-if wedded once, out parted now!
 Alas! for hearts that pride has severed-if wedded once, but parted now.
