Words and Music by O. DuBois.

The world seems fair and smiling to lovers in their youth.
The sun so bright, the sky so light, to me And my darling Ruth.
We met at the seashore a short year ago-
Bold cupid, he dealt us a sudden, swift blow.
And from that blest moment, the fairest I know,
We were sweethearts, my Ruth and I.

Then those who've had that, feeling, been right deep in love,
Felt the sweet thought stealing gently from above,
They know the bliss of loving, all the ecstasy,
Given to such sweethearts as fair Ruth and I.

And now my Ruth has promised that she my bride will be;
Where first we met, we'll ne'er forget, we'll marry by the sea.
She gives me her hand, her future, her life,
And well will I strive to protect her, my wife;
I'll guard her from danger, the world and its strife,
My dear heart, my Ruth And I.-Chorus.
