Words by Palmer Cox. Music by Malcolm Douglas.

'Twas at the quiet hour, the light fades in the West,
And in the tender silence the soul is filled with rest.
Beside the casement, dreaming of days that are no more,
The sweet hopes dead, the joys long fled came to me o'er and o'er.

Dream not again, dream not again; oh, foolish heart, alas! 'twere vain;
Though in the dusk, still you dream on, the past is gone, forever gone.

Oh, joys that long since vanished; oh, hopes that ne'er could be;
Whene'er the shadows deepen, why come in dreams to me;
The past, with all its promise, I may not live again;
Our paths, dear heart, lie far apart, and dreaming were in vain.-Refrain.

It may be I shall meet you, in God's good time at last.
That some day I shall greet you, beloved, and bold you fast;
That we, alas I were parted -perhaps 'twere better so;
But through the years, with all their tears, come dreams of long ago.-Ref.
