Long, Long Ago

Tell me the tales
That to me were so dear,
Long, long ago,
Long, long ago;
Sing me the songs
I delighted to hear,
Long, long ago,
Long ago.
Now you are come,
All my grief is removed,
Let me forget
That so long you have roved,
Let me believe
That you love as you loved,
Long, long ago,
Long ago.

Do you remember
The path where we met,
Long, long ago,
Long, long ago?
That's when you told me
You would not forget,
Long, long ago,
Long ago.
Then, to all others
My smile you preferred,
Love, when you spoke,
Gave a charm to each word,
Still my heart treasures
The praises I heard,
Long, long ago,
Long ago.

Though by your kindness
My fond hopes were raised,
Long, long ago,
Long, long ago;
You by more eloquent
Lips have been praised,
Long, long ago,
Long ago.
But by long absence
Your truth has been tried,
Still to your accents
I listen with pride,
Blessed as I was
When I sat by your side,
Long, long ago,
Long ago.
