Darling, fold me to you closer.
As you did in days of yore;
Press your lips upon my forehead,
Ere I see the golden shore.
Life is from me fastly fleeting,
Soon I'll be in sweet repose;
When I am gone I ask this favor,
Lay my head beneath a rose.

Lay me where sweet flowers blossom-,
Where the dainty lily grows;
Where the pink and violets mingle,
Lay my head beneath a rose.

Darling one, when first I met you.
When I pledged you hand and heart,
There were roses on your cheeks, love.
And we vowed we ne'er would part.
One more kiss, for I am going,
Far beyond all earthly woes;
Let my grave be like your cheeks, love,
Covered with the blushing rose.-Chorus.
