I Am Weary Let Me Rest

print

   Kiss me mother kiss your darling
   Lay my head upon your breast
   Fold your loving arms around me
   I am weary let me rest

Through the years you’ve always loved me
And my life you’ve tried to save
But now I will slumber sweetly
In a cold and lonely grave

Now the light is swiftly fading
Brighter scenes they now do show
I am standing by the river
Angels wait to take me home
