"E'en as the morning dew distils
Its sweetness on the flower,
So unto you may life disclose
Fresh beauty every hour!
What wish can friendship form for thee,
What brighter star invoke to shine?
Thy path from every thorn be free
And every rose be thine
Oh I let my friendship in the wreath,
Though but a bud among these flowers,
Its sweetest fragrance round thee breathe,
'Twill serve to soothe the
All thy life be ever bright -
Never shadow, ever light!
