When shadows fall, o’er the canyon wall, 

And night birds call in the pine trees tall, 

Then moonbeams bright from the God of night, 
Come softly gleaming and beaming, 

Where lovely maids sit dreaming, 

Whisp’ring “Lo! ’Tis time for mating, 

Don’t be slow, thy love is waiting, 

Haste, Oh, haste, no time to waste, 

Fond hearts are burning with yearning for thee!”

The Birth of Morn 

(DAWN) 

vViVVWWVWWWVWV 


An angel, robed in spotless white, 

Bent down and kissed the sleeping night. 
Night woke to blush; the sprite was gone. 
Men saw the hlush and called it dawn.

Music by 

JESSIE L. DEPPEN 



In the garden of to-morrow, 

Will the roses be more fair? 

Will we find relief from sorrow, 

Will there be more sunshine there? 
For each love flow* that will blossom, 
Some will die and fade away. 

Oh! I’d so much rather, 

All my, love flowTs gather, 

From tne g arden of to-da y.

A Brown Bird Singing - 

Song 


Music by 
HAYDN .WOOD 



Singing in the hush of the darkness and the dew. 

Would that his song through the stillness could go winging - , 
Could go winging to you, to you. 


All-, through the night time my lonely heart is singing 
Sweeter songs of love than the brown bird ever knew, 

Sweeter songs of love than the brown bird ever knew. 

Would that the song of my heart could go a-winging, 

Could go a-winging to you, to you. 

All through the night time my lonely heart is singing 
Sweeter songs of love than the brown bird ever knew.

words by I Look Into Your Garden Music by 

CHARLES WILMOTT Song HAYDN WOOD 



dew is on the grass; 

But with all its glowing roses and its perfumes rich and rare, 
It’s a wilderness to me, dear, for I do not see you there. 


I look into your garden when the ev’ning shadows fall, 

When the flow’rs are closed in slumber and the birds have ceased to call; 
But though all is grey and shadowed and no perfume scents the air, 

It’s a paradise to me, dear, for I see you waiting there, 

And I thank God for your love, dear, when I meet and kiss you there.
