The day is cold and dark and dreary;
It rains and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the mould'ring wall,
But at ev'ry gust the dead leaves fall,
At ev'ry gust the dead leaves fall.
And the day is dark and dreary.

My life is cold and dark and dreary;
It rains and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the mould'ring Past
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
The hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
And the days are dark and dreary.

Be still sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary,
Some days must be dark and dreary.
