1.
Soft be thy slumbers,
Rude cares depart,
Visions in numbers
Cheer thy young heart.
Dream on while bright hours
And fond hopes remain,
Blooming like smiling bowers
For thee, Ellen Bayne.
Chorus:
Gentle slumber o’er thee glide,
Dreams of beauty round thee bide
While I linger by thy side,
Sweet Ellen Bayne.
2.
3.
Dream not in anquish,
Dream not in fear;
Love shall not lanquish;
Fond ones are near.
Sleeping or waking,
In pleasure or pain
Warm hearts will beat for thee,
Sweet Ellen Bayne.
Chorus:
Scenes that have vanished
Smile on thee now,
Pleasures once banished
Play round thy brow,
Forms long departed
Greet thee again
Soothing thy dreaming heart,
Sweet Ellen Bayne.
