The shadows lie across the dim old room,
The fire-light glows and fades into the gloom,
While mem'ry sails to childhood's distant shore,
And dreams, and dreams of days that are no more.

Sweet dreamland faces passing to and fro,
Bring back to mem'ry days of long ago;
Murmuring gently thro' a mist of pain,
"Hope on, dear lov'd one, we shall meet again !"

Once more I see across the distant years
A face long gone, with all its smiles and tears;
Once more I press a tender loving hand,
And with my darling 'neath the old oak stand.
Sweet dreamland faces passing, &c.

But all I lov'd are gone, and I alone in life,
To wait, and wait, and wait 'till death shall end the strife;
Until once more I join the hearts that loved me best,
Where the wicked cease from troubling, and the weary are at rest.
Sweet dreamland faces passing, &c.
