We are Coming, Sister Mary

On a stormy*night in Winter,
When the winds blew cold and wet,
I heard some strains of music,
That I never can forget;
I was sleeping in the cabin,
Where lived Mary, fair and young,
When a light shone in the window,
And a band of singers sung-
We are coming, sister Mary,
We are comiutr by-and-by,
Be ready, sister Mary,
For the time is drawing nigh.

I tried to call my Mary,
But my tongue could not obey,
When the soti^ so strange had ended,
And the singers flown away.
As I watch'd I heard a rustling,
Like the rustling of a wing,
And beside my Mary's pillow
Very soon I heard them sing-Chorus.

Then again I called my Mary,
But my sorrow was complete,
For I found her heart of kindness
Had forever ceased to beat;
And now I am very lonely,
From Summer round to Spring,
And I oft, in midnight slumber,
Think I hear the same ones sing-Chorus.
