A Leaf of Ivy from Mother's Grave
Composed and sung by Charles A. Saville.

I went to Greenwood yesterday,
To visit my angel mother's grave;
Gently I knelt beside the mound,
Anil took a leaf of ivy from the grave;
Mother's dwelliug with the angels,
With a crown upon her brow;
And 'tis only in my visions
That I see my angel mother now.

Chorus.
Mother's dwelling with the angels,
With a crown upon her brow;
And 'tis only in my visions
That I see my angel mother now.

Mother died when I was quite young,
And it soon broke up my home;
Soon I found I was not welcome,
. And like a stranger I did roam;
All I've got now to remember her, .
And winch I cherish and will save,
Is this little leaf of ivy-
A leaf of ivy from my mother's grave. - Chorus.

Since mother's death I feel forsaken.
And o'er the wild world I have roamed;
Until, when my poor heart was breaking,
With my brother, then, I found a home;
From mother we'll not long be parted,
Soon we'll meet her up above,
Where we'll ne'er again be parted,
But will live in joy and endless love.-Chorus.
