Sweet be thy slumber in bright dreams of gladness,
Angels around thee bid thy cares depart;
Far from thee linger all trouble and sadness,
Joy fold thee to thy rest wherever thou art!
Still in thy dreaming be visions of splendor.
Bright as yon starlight that falls o'er the deep;
When dies the soft day. so tranquil and tender,
My dearest, my fairest all calm be thy sleep.
While in distant kind my heart's repining,
'Twill be joy to know that happy you may be;
When the stars of the night are softly shining,
My loved one don't forget to dream of me.
Waking or sleeping, of thee still I'm dreaming,
Tho' we are parted never more to meet;
Fair o'er my pathway in beauty are beaming,
Eyes that so long ago 'twas rapture to greet.
Bright be thy moments, tho' far we must sever,
Glad be the future, tho' lonely I stray;
Tho' joys I once shared are gone now forever.
In sleeping, in waking thy visions be gay.-Refrain.
Angels watch o'er thee till morning is breaking,
Keep thee forever far from earthly care;
Bright as the roses, from slumber awaking,
Look thou with loving eyes on all that is fair.
Tho' I'm forgotten, and each tie is broken,
One tender memory, oh, give unto me;
Tho' now of our past thy heart keeps no token,
My darling, my loved one, all joy fall to thee.-Refrain.
