Love's Old Sweet Song
by Jim McCann



Once in the dear dead days beyond recall .
When on the world the mists began to fall
Out of the dreams that rose in happy throng
Low to our hearts love sung an old sweet song .
And in the dusk where fell the firelight gleam
Softly it wove itself into our dream

Just a song at twilight, when the lights are low
And theflick'ring shadows softly come and go
Though the heart be weary sad the day and long ,
Still to us at twilight comes love's old song
Comes love's own sweet song
Even today we hear love's song of yore .
Deep in our hearts it dwells for evermore
Footsteps may falter, weary grow the way
Still we can hear it at the close of day
So till the end, when life's dim shadows fall
Love will be found the sweetest song of all

Just a song at twilight, when the lights are low
And theflick'ring shadows softly come and go
Though the heart be weary sad the day and long ,
Still to us at twilight comes love's old song
Comes love's own sweet song
