Oh, will you hear my mournful story,
All my friends are dead and gone,
Father is no more, nor mother,
I am an orphan left alone.

Brothers I have none, nor sisters.
All forever from me gone,
They have left this world of sorrow,
I am an orphan left alone.

Mother said to me while dying,
When her breath was almost gone,
Dearest daughter, trust in Jesus,
You are an orphan left alone.

Take this bible to your bedside,
Read and for your sins atone,
Ask the Savior to forgive you,
You are an orphan left alone.

When at last her eyes were closed,
And her corpse lay in the tomb,
My eyes rested but on strangers,
I was an orphan left alone.

Oftimes to her grave I've wandered,
Praying for my time to come
When I, too, may lie beside her,
Ne'er again to be alone.
