Words and Music by Montgomery Irving.

As the first star of evening appeared in the sky,
Two figures gazed far up above:
They were sweethearts, who thought none so happy as they,
For their whisp'rings were sweet tales of love:
"If when we're united, will you ever prove true?"
He said, "Love, from you I'll ne'er part."
Her eyes showed the answer her lips could not speak,
As he sang to his little sweetheart:

Faithful, love, as yonder star I'll always be to thee,
Tell me that you are the same and constant will I be;
I have no wealth to offer, but a heart that's fond and true:
Then brighter shone the little star, and twinkled fond adieu.

Ere a month passed away, two hearts were made one,
Their happiness they thought complete,
For in joy and contentment the weeks glided on,
As they prayed for their Maker to keep.
"Fifty years gone, my darling, those blue eyes the same,
And always a smile, love, for me;
As the blushes of purity peeped on each cheek,
He whispered that old melody;- Chorus.
