The Wife of Usher's Well
5   The table was set in the dining-room, Spread over with cakes and wine. Go sit down, my three little babes, And eat and drink of mine.
6   Take it off, take it off, dear mother, said they, Take it off, I say again,
For we'll not be here till the break of day ; My Saviour will call us away.
7   Rise up, rise up, said the oldest one, I think it's almost day.
See my Saviour standing by To welcome us three home.
