"I'VE DRANK'RY LAST GLASS.
No, comrades, I thank you-not any
for me;
My last chain- Is riven-henceforward
I'm free
I will go to my home and my childrer1
to-night
With no fumes of liquor their spiritt
to blight;
And, with tears in my eyes, I will beg
my poor wife
To forgive me the wreck I have made
of herlife !
%,I have never refused you before!'
Let that pass,
For I've drunk ny last glass, boys,
I have drunk my lsst glass.
Just look at me now, boys, in rags and
disgrace,.
With my bleared, haggard eyes, and
. my red, bloated face!
My faltering step, and my weak pal
sied hand,
And the mark on my brow that is
worse than Cain's braad,
My crownless old hat, and my elbows
and knees
Alike warmed by the sunshine or chill
ed by the breeze.
Why, even the children hoot as I pass;
But I've drunk ny last glass, boys,
I have drunk my last glass.
You would hardly believe, boys, to look
at me now,
That a mother's soft hand once was
pressed on my brow
When she kissed me, and blessed me,
her darling, her pride.
Ere she lay (own to rest by my dead
father's side:
But with love in her eyes, she looked
up to the sky,
Bidding ME meet her THERE, and then
whispered, "Good-bye."
And 111 do it, God helping I Your
smile I let pass,
For I've drunk my last glass,boys,
I have drunk my last glass.
As I reeled home last night-it was not
very late,
For I had spent my last sixprnce, and
landlords "won't wait '
Ou a fellow who's left every cent in
their till,
And has pawned his last bedding their
coffersto till.
Oh, the torments I felt, and the pangs
lendured I
And I begged for ONE glass-thinking
ONE would have cured.
But when kicked out of doors] I let
that, too, pass;
But I've dr unk my last glass, bo3 s,
I have drunk my last glass.
At home my pet Susie, with bright
golden hair,
I saw through the window, just kneel
ing in prayer,
From her thin, bony hands her torn
sleeves were strung down,
While her feet, cold and bare, sh rank
beneath her sc.uat gown I
And she PRAYED, prayed in vain, just
a poor crust of bread,
For ONE crust on her knees my pet
darling plead !
And I HEARD with no penny to buy
one, alas !
But I've drunk my last glass, boys,
I have drunk my last glass.
For Susie, my darling, wee six-year old,
Though fainting with hunger and shiv
ring with cold,
Thiere on the bare floor, asked God to
bless ME!I
And she said, "Don't cry, mamma I
r He will ! for you see
I BFLIEVE what I ask for!I "Then so
bered, I crept
Away from the house; and that night
wheni I slept,
Next my heart lay the PLEDGE!I You
may emilec! let it pass;
For I've drunk my last glass, boys,
I have drunk my last glass.
My darling child saved mec! 11cr faitli
and her love
Are akin to my dear sainted mothe1
I'Will make her words true, or I'll die
it the raice,
And sober, I'll go to ny last resting
place;
And she, she shall kneel there, am
weeping, thank God,
NO DRUNKARD lies under the daisy
strewn sod I
Not a drop more of poison my lipt
shall e'er pass,
For I've drunkiny last glass, boys
I have drunk my last glass.
