I hear a tune it croons to me
A half forgotten memory
The vestige of what used to be
When you and I were young and free.
The time’s long gone, it passed us by
Too late to query, wonder why
The heart remembers so do I
Tis the moment to bid goodbye.
The blessed Lord who guides our way
And taught us each from day to day
His wisdom reaches out to save
This lonely soul from empty grave !
