Rosewood casket

There's a little rosewood casket
Laying on a marble stand
And a package of old letters
Written by my true love's hand
Go and get them for me sister
Read them o'er and o'er to me
I have often tried to read them
But for tears, I could not see

Come up closer to me sister
Let me lean upon your breast
For the tide of life is ebbing
And soon I'll be at reast
Read them over to me sister
While I gently fall asleep
Fall asleep to wake in Jesus
Dearest sister do not weep

Tell him sister if you see him
That I never ceased to love
That my dying prayer's to meet him
In a better world above
There's a little rosewood casket
Laying on a marble stand
And a package of love letters
Written by her true love's hand
