Written by W. A. Archbold. Composed by Felix McGlennon.

In simple set phrases I'll sing in the praises
Of love, 'tis a ne'er ending theme;
The sweet, tender passion is ever in fashion,
And makes life one beautiful dream.
The big ship is starting, two lovers are parting,
'Tis Jack and his Sally so neat;
Her dear golden tresses he gently caresses,
She whispers in tones low and sweet:

I'll be constant, constant and true,
Hoping and waiting, my dear love, for you;
When you come back over the ocean blue
You'll find your little sweetheart still Is constant and true.

Though oceans divide them, whate'er may betide them,
They've sworn to be faithful and true;
And Jack still is dreaming of light he saw gleaming,
Of love in two bright eyes of blue.
Her picture he's wearing, for her sake he's daring,
And spurs on to fortune and fame;
In sweet accents ringing, he hears her voice singing,
When he asks, will my love be the same?- Chorus.

The ship is returning, his true heart is yearning
To greet his own darling once more;
Her picture he kisses, he thinks of the blisses
And sweet, happy courtship of yore.
The harbor is sighted, their hearts are united.
And swear to prove constant, through life:
Then Jack wins his treasure, his cup's filled with pleasure,
To hear from his own darling wife:- Chorus.
