A SISTERS LULLABY.
Copyright, 1885, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Sleep, little darling, sister is near,
She will watch o'er thee, so hush ev'ry fear;
Home to the angels mother has flown,
Sister and brother, we're left all alone.
Sleep, little darling, no care shall annoy,
Angels will watch o'er the motherless boy,
Yes, angels will watch o'er the motherless boy.
Rest, little brother, sweet be thy dream,
Stars o'er thy pillow will lovingly beam;
Mother's fond kisses now will be thine,
Round thee in visions her arms will entwine.-Chorus.
Sleep, little darling, close now thine eyes,
Mother is watching from yonder fair skies;
Wake with the roses, brother, so dear.
Wake with the birdies, I still shall be near -Chorus
