IRISH MELODIES.

Go where glory waits thee.

Mr—MiU of the Valley.

Go where glory waits thee;
But, while fame elates thee,

Oh! still remember me.
When the praise thou meetest
To thine ear is sweetest,

Oh! then remember me.
Other arms may press thee,
Dearer friends caress thee,
All the joys that bless thee

Sweeter far may be;
But when friends are nearest,
And when joys are dearest,

Oh! then remember me.

When, at eve, thou rovest,
By the star thou lovest,

Oh! then remember me.
Think, when home returning,
Bright we've seen it burning,

Oh! then remember me.

[graphic]

Oft, as summer closes,
When thine eye reposes
On its lingering roses,

Once so lov'd by thee,
Think of her who wove them;
Her who made thee love them;

Oh! then remember me.

When, around thee, dying,
Autumn leaves are lying,

Oh! then remember me:
And, at night, when gazing
On the gay hearth blazing,

Oh! still remember me.
Then should music stealing
All the soul of feeling,
To thy heart appealing,

Draw one tear from thee;
Then let mem'ry bring thee
Strains I us'd to sing thee;

Oh! then remember me.

War Song.

Air—Molly Macalpin.

Remember the glories of Brien the brave,1
Though the days of the hero are o'er;

Though, lost to Mononia, and cold in the grave,2
He returns to Kinkora no more!3
