Words and Music by Bert Hanna.

No words, fond heart, can ever tell the pain that lies In this farewell;
No balm can soothe this sad adieu, since I have learned to love but you.
Too short the days, when at thy feet. I listened to thy voice so sweet;
Too long the days will seem to me, when I am far away from thee.

Thus ends my dream of bliss, and it were best we part;
Here, with one farewell kiss, cheer my breaking heart;
Since in your breast to-day love does no longer dwell,
then it were best to say forevermore farewell.

What you have learned, I ne'er shall know, since I have learned to love you so;
And in my heart shall ever dwell the sadness of this last, farewell;
Thy smile, that has so often cheered my anxious heart when you appeared,
Shall ever as a mem'ry stay, to pain the heart it once made gay.-Refrain.

Within your heart, as in my own, I thought that love had reared her throne,
Whereat I worshipped only you, and you received my homage true;
But now, alas, the dream is o'er, and we must part forevermore;
The hope that once I dared to tell lies buried in this last farewell.-Refrain
