Words by Anna M. Gilligan. Music by John J. Mclntyre.

Dear heart, the hour has come to leave you, I must cross the ocean wide;
I know my absence, dear, will grieve you, for you are my promised bride;
Oh, rest your bead upon my heart, love, while the farewell words we say,
Oh promise me before we part, love, you'll be true when I'm away.

I must leave you, my own darling, now my ship's upon the bay,
Oh, give me this promise, sweetheart, be true to me when I'm away.

When others fondly kneel before you, and their wealth of love bestow,
Remember, dear, that I adore you, my heart's yours where'er I go.
Oh, do not break your vows to me, love, I'll return again some day,
And ever in my thoughts you'll be, love, so be true when I'm away.-Refrain.
