Lyrics

No day so beautiful, no hour so fair
But comes at length unto its golden close;
No song so sweet, no harmony so rare
But thru the silence quivers to repose.
And yet, dear love, we would not sacrifice
One day, one golden hour we may recall;
Enshrined within our hearts, a paradise
Where memories remain, tho shadows fall!

No dream so wonderful that heart can know
But brings its tender aftermath of tears;
No tide so all relentless in its flow
But turns again and changes with the years.
And yet, dear love, we would not sacrifice
One dream, one tender tear we may recall;
Enshrined within our hearts, a paradise
Where memories remain, tho shadows fall!
