Bend o’er my pillow my mother dear
Lifes chilling close is now drawing near
Drive from about me these clouds of fear
Breathe o’er my brow a parting sigh,
Refrain:
I have been wayward unto thee
Now I can feel it painfully
Patient and kind wert thou to me
Kiss me dear mother ere I die.
Tell me of angels that dwell above
Then from my heart will the tear drops move
Whisper to me gentle words of love
While I in gloom and suff'ring lie,
Refrain:
