OUR WEDDING JUBILEE.
Copyright, 1891, by Francis, Day & Hunter.
Written and Composed by Robert Field.
Come and sit by my side, my darling, yes, my darling, tho' aged and grey,
For I love you as well this moment as I did on our wedding day;
And altho' fifty years have gone by, love, thro' each I've been happy with thee,
And to-day is our golden wedding, to-day is our wedding jubilee.
Our golden wedding, 'tis our golden wedding,
Just fifty years ago since we
Knelt together side by side, and you became my bride,
Yes, to-day is our wedding jubilee.
We have seen many changes, darling, and of troubles we've had our share,
Yet, we always have pulled together when the burden was hard to bear; [rain,
And we've taken fresh heart from the proverb, Bright sunshine will follow the
Feeling sure that upon the morrow dame fortune would smile on us again.- Cho.
All our children will come, my darling, yes, and all our grandchildren, too,
Proud to honor our golden wedding, and to show their fond love for you;
So, then, let us be happy, my darling, while dear ones and friends gather 'round,
Ere upon us shall close life's evening, and calmly we sleep beneath the ground.
