Stephen Foster, 1863
Lay me down where the grass is green, mother,|
Beneath the willow shade,
Where the murmuring winds will mourne, mother,
The wreck that death has made.

And mourn not at my loss,
For I'll join the beautiful army
That carried the Saviour's cross.

3. I have heard the songs of the blest, mother,|
And angels are drawing near
To carry me o'er the stream, mother,
That mortals dread and fear.
4. You must promise to come to me, mother,
