Snow Covered Mound

print

Covered with snow neath the mantle of white
Sleeping so calm while the winter winds blow
Our mother is resting from the day and the night
She sleeps in the grave all covered with snow

    Sleeping neath the gentle snow
    Sweetly she sleeps while the winter winds blow
    Calmly she’s resting neath the mantle of white
    Our mother is sleeping she’s sleeping tonight

There she will sleep til the springtime has come
Sweet fragrant roses will bloom on her tomb
Sleeping so calm while the winter winds blow
She sleeps in a grave all covered with snow

There she will sleep beneath the snow covered mound
Til that glad day when the trumpets shall sound
Then she will wake from her slumber below
And we’ll be reunited to live evermore
