I Cannot Sing That Song To-Night
Copyright, 1880, by S. T. Gordon A Son.

I cannot sing that song to-night,
For in its words and music dwell,
While all your hearts seem gay and light,
To me a sad and fearful spell;
For 'tis the song I used to sing
For him when all was hope and truth,
Before I knew that time would fling
One shadow o'er my happy youth.

I would not bring my sorrows here
Amidst this bright and joyous throng,
I would repress the rising tear,
Then ask me not to sing that song;
It tells how hard it is to part
From those to whom we fondly cling;
Its notes And echo in my heart,
That song I cannot dare to sing.
