Copyright, 1888, by Chas. D. Blake & Co.

I see thy loving smile,
I hear thy gentle voice,
That could the darkest hour beguile,
And make my heart rejoice.
I see thee still as in the happy past,
And in my bosom tender mem'ries dwell,
Bright hour of bliss that could not last,
Sweet Marguerite, farewell.

I know not if within the bounds of time,
We'll meet again our mutual love to tell,
I hear the hour for parting chime,
Sweet Marguerite, farewell;
I hear the hour for parting chime,
Sweet Marguerite, sweet Marguerite, farewell,
Marguerite, farewell, farewell.

What though between us oceans roll,
And swelling seas divide,
My heart still owns thy sweet control,
It knows no queen beside.
And often in the holy hush of night.
This theme my fondly waiting heart will swell-
Dear dream of love that made earth bright,
Sweet Marguerite, farewell.-Chorus.

And though in life we meet no more
As in the happy past,
We'll bless those blissful days of yore,
While life and time shall last.
Beyond the reach of every grief and pain,
Beyond time's dark and stormy billows swell
Above life's clouds we'll meet again,
Sweet Marguerite, farewell.-Chorus.
