Words by George Cooper. Music by J. P. Skelly.

Out on the night a song was ringing with gladness,
Twas sung from the heart, and fell all ears to delight-
What though the lips that sang had tasted of sadness.
The world, to the rest who heard, was happy and bright.
Back to the singer came the dreams of his childhood.
The hopes that had faded like sweet flowers on the plain.
Once more in sunny hours he roamed 'mid the wildwood,
While singing of "brighter days" to soon "come again."

Joy filled the hearts that heard, hope breath'd in every word,
They knew not the singer sang from out his heart that strain.
Sweet as the songs of birds that tell winter's over.
That song telling "brighter days" would soon "come again"

Still rang that hopeful song, the heart strangely holding
it stirred with its magic strain the listening throng.
Little the singer knew that portals unfolding
Would soon show those "brighter days," the theme of his song.
There, 'mid the glad applause that greeted the closing,
The heart that had sung that song, 'mid sadness And pain,
Safe in yon realms of bliss was calmly reposing.
His last song was "brighter days" which had "come again " -Cho.
