Don't Shut Out the Sunlight, Mother.
Words and music by Will. H. Fox.

Don't shut out the sunlight, mother,
Let the sunshine in again,
Its beams may woo me off to slumbers,
For I've tried to sleep in vain;
Mother, I have watched for hours,
As I lay here all alone,
How those sweet And fragrant flowers
Faded when the sun had gone.
Don't shut out the sunlight, mother,
Let it beam on me once more,
Ere the angels call me, mother,
To the happy golden shore.

Don't shut out the sunlight, mother,
For it is my last request,
Nor do not close the shutters, mother,
Till I pass away to rest;
When you find that I am dying,
To be laid beneath the clay,
Lay me gently, won't you, mother,
Where the golden sunbeams stray.-Chorus.
