Abstract

In happy moments day by day,
The sands of life may pass,
In swift but tranquil tide away
From time’s unering glass.
Yet hopes we used as bright to deem
Remembrance will recall,
Whose pure and whose unfading beam Is dear er then them all,
Whose pure and whose unfading beam Is dearer than them all.

Tho anxious eyes upon us gaze,
And hearts with fondness beat,
Whose smile upon each feature plays
With truthfulness replete.
Some thoughts none other can replace
Remembrance will recall,
Which in the flight of years we trace Is dear er then them all,
Which in the flight of years we trace Is dearer than them all.
