Down where the waving willows
'Neath the sunbeams smile;
Shadowed o'er the murm'ring waters,
Dwelt sweet Annie Lisle;
Pure as the forest lily,
Never thought of guile,
Had its home within the bosom
Of loved Annie Lisle.

Wave willows, murmur water.
Golden sunbeam smile-
Earthly music cannot waken
Lovely Annie Lisle.

Sweet came the hallowed chiming
Of the sabbath bell,
Born on the morning breezes
Down the woody dell;
On a bed of anguish
Lay dear Annie Lisle;
Changed were the lovely features-
Gone the happy smile.-Chorus.

Toll bells of sabbath morning,
I shall never more
Hear your sweet and holy music
On this earthly shore.
Forms clad in heav'nly beauty
Look on me and smile,
Waiting for the longing spirit
Of your Annie Lisle.-Chorus.

Raise me in your arms, dear mother,
Let me once more look
On the green and waving, willows,
And the flowing brook-
Hark, those strains of angel music
From the choir above;
Dearest mother, I am going-
Truly, " God is love."-Chorus.
