When the Curtains of Night

Cat. #1280 (MFH #285) - As sung by Floyd Holland, Mountain View, Arkansas on October 25, 1971

When th curtains of night are pinned back by th stars
An' th beautiful Moon leads th skies
Dew drops of Heaven are kissing th rose
It's then that my memory flies
Death on th wing, some beautiful dove
An' ---- th message it bears
---- ---- ---- --- ---
I'll remember you, love, on my prayers

Go where ya will, on land or on sea
I'll share your sorrow an' cares
When by my bedside I kneel down to pray
I'll remember you, love, in my prayers

I love you to fondly to ever forget
Th love you have spoken to me
An' th kisses of affection are warm on my lips
When you told me how true you would be
No not fortune be fickle or bend
Or ---- on your memory----
Know that I love you wherever you go
I'll remember you, love, in my prayers

When th Heavenly angels are guiding th good
As God ordained them to do
As answers to prayers I have offered to Him
Know there is One watching you
May His bright spirit go with you thru life
An' to guide you up Heaven's bright stairs
An' meet your loved one that has loved you so true
I'll remember you, love, in my prayers
