      A wonderful stream is the River Time
      As it runs through the vale of tears,
      With a faultless rythym, a musical rhyme
      And a broader sweep and a surge sublime,
      As it blends with the ocean of years.

      There's a magical isle up the River Time,
      Where the softest of songs are plaing;
      There's a cloudless sky, and a tropical clime
      And a tune as sweet as a vesper chime
      And the Junes with the roses are straying.

      There are hands that are waved at this beautiful shore:
      When the mist has lifted in air
      And we sometimes hear through the restless roar
      Sweet voices heard in the days gone before,
      When the wind down the river was fair.

      And remembered for always is this blessed isle,
      All the days of our life till its night
      And when our evening glows with its beautiful smile,
      And our eyes are closing in last slumber
      While that wonderful isle comes in sight.
