Sarchett Once on the path of life, I was footsore, worn and weary, There came a little bird, To cheer my path so dreary. I pressed it to my heart, And so forgot my sorrow In my deep love for him, I thought not of the morrow. 'Tis thy remembrance dear, 'Tis thy sweet memory. Once on the path of life, My feet were torn and bleeding, One sang a lovely song, I heard It then, and heeding, It comforte'd me long, Till I forgot my pain, In tSinking of ils melody, Which I seek now in vain. 'Tis thy remembrance, dear, 'Tis thy sweet memory. Once on the path of life, My heart was bruised and aching, I plucked a bright red rose, That grew there for my taking. I pressed it to my lips, And drank deep of its sweetness, And so my heart was cheered, By Its beauty and its neatness. 'Tis thy remembrance, dear, 'Tis thy sweet memory. Finale Why do I think of that little bird? I who am old and wise, Why when I see a sturdy red rose, Do the tears come to my eyes, Why when I think of the lovely song The song that I seek In vain, Do I sink to my knees to weep and pray, For the loss that is thy gain. 'Tis thy remembrance, dear, 'Tis thy sweet memory. 6' 60 At Party For Burt Girl To Wed Feb. 14 Burt: A group of about 60 gathered at the G. C.
