WARNINGS AND ADMONITIONS.                         59
76                         8s. & 6s.
1   CAN we forget the gloomy time, When Bacchus rul'd the day, When dissipation, sloth, and crime,
Bore undisputed sway ?
The time—the time—the gloomy time—
The time has pass'd away, When dissipation, sloth, and crime,
Bore undisputed sway.
2  Can we forget the tender wives,
Who found an early tomb, For, ah ! the partners of their lives Had met the drunkard's doom ?
The wives—the wives—the tender wives,
May bid adieu to gloom, For now the partners of their lives Abhor the drunkard's doom.
3  We'll ne'er forget that noble band
Who fear'd no creature's frown, And boldly pledg'd both heart and hand, To put intemp'rance down,
The band—the band—the noble band—
The band of blest renown— Who boldly pledg'd both heart and hand To put intemp'rance down.
4  Nor shall the Pledge be e'er forgot,
That so much bliss creates— " We'll touch nottaste nothandle not, Whate'er Intoxicates."
The Pledge—the Pledge is not forgot—
The pledge that Satan hates— " We'll touch nottaste nothandle not, Whatever intoxicates"
Hatfield.
