VP_001303 Verse 1Farewell; no other word we know, So full of love, so full of woe, It is the saddest that the heart, Can to loved friend or scene impart, It swells up from our inmost soul, And this sad word our hearts control; Companion word may bring a sigh, Yet not so sad was e'er goodbye; Farewell; farewell; no word we know, So full of love, so full of woe, It is the saddest that the heart, Can to loved friend or scene impart. Verse 2That word farewell I'll ne'er forget, Deep in my heart I hold it yet, What though so sad, 'tis sweet to me, As mem'ry brings me thought of thee, I stand again upon the shore, Where I last spoke it o'er and o'er; Yes in my heart 'twill ever dwell, A lasting, loving, fond farewell; Farewell; farewell; no word we know, So full of love, so full of woe, It is the saddest that the heart, Can to loved friend or scene impart.
