Title
His sweet face she never saw more
Additional title: A widowed mother anxiously awaits her boys return, For two long years her son had been away, bring me back my darling one the idol of my heart, For his return she prayed both night and day, The lad he was a sailor on a ship that had been lost, She's waiting for him still but all in vain. [first line]
Additional title: His sweet face she never saw more, Each day as she strolls by the sea, She cries in despair as she offered this pray'r, Oh send back my darling to me. [first line of chorus]
