Faithful Friend

My bark Of life was tossing down,
The troubled sea of time,
When first I saw your smiling face,
When youth was in its prime,
When life's dark hours were turned to life,
My sorrowed heart set free,
And ever since that time you've been
A faithful friend to me.

Cho.
It matters not where'er I roam,
Wherever you may be,
If ever I have had a friend,
You've been that friend to me.

One bright look from your blue eyes,
Dispells a cloud of strife,
And sends its rays of sunshine down,
My wearied path of life,
I now look back upon the past,
Across life's stormy sea,
And smile to think amid life's scene,
You've been that friend to me.
Cho.

The time has come that we must part,
I give this ring to thee,
I place it on thy finger dear,
That you may think of me,
Here's my hand and here's my heart,
I give them both to thee,
And if I never more come back,
I hope you'll think of me.
Cho.
