And so you have come back to me

And say the old love's growing yet

You tried through all these weary years

You tried too vainly to forget

Oh no I cannot take your hand

God never gives us back our youth

The loving heart you slighted then

Was yours my friend in perfect truth

Come close and let me see your face

Your raven hair is tinged with snow

Oh yes it is the same dear face

I loved so many years ago

Oh no I cannot take your hand

God never gives us back our youth

The loving heart you slighted then

Was yours my friend in perfect truth

Farewell I think I love you yet

As friend to friend God bless you dear

And guide you through these weary years

To where the skies are always clear

Oh no I cannot take your hand

God never gives us back our youth

The loving heart you slighted then

Was yours my friend in perfect truth

Oh no I cannot take your hand

God never gives us back our youth

The loving heart you slighted then

Was yours my friend in perfect truth
