ALL LIFE LONG.

Words by Harry S. Miller. Music by H. W. Petrie.
"Will your love constant be?" asked a sweet young maid.
"Could you think same of me as the past?" she said.
And in years that may come, when sweet youth must fade.
Could I know future so? Ah, yes, you may say
All life long I will love you, sweetheart, only you;
All life long I will guide thee, darling, only you;
All life long; believe me, all that I say is true,
Hear my vow: Then as now; ah, yes! all life long.
"When old age bids me bow, and all beauty gone,
Will you love then as now, be the same sweet song?
And each kiss on my brow be as ever warm?
Could I know future so? Ah, yes, you may say;-Refrain.
