505 0 |a Let me kiss him for his mother, Let me kiss his dear youthful brow; I will love him for his Mother, And seek her blessing now. Kind friends have soothed his pillow, Have watched his ev'ry care; Beneath the weeping willow, Oh lay him gently there. CHORUS.---Sleep, dearest, sleep; I love you as a brother; Kind friends around you weep, I've kissed you for your Mother. Let me kiss him for his Mother, What though left a lone stranger here; She has loved him as none other, I feel her blessing near. Though cold that form lies sleeping, Sweet angels watch around; Dear friends are near thee weeping; Oh lay him gently down. CHORUS.---Sleep, dearest, &c Let me kiss him for his Mother, Or perchance a fond sister dear, If a father or a brother, I know their blessings here. Then kiss him for his Mother: 'Twill soothe her after years; Farewell, dear stranger, brother, Our requiem, our tears. CHORUS.---Sleep, dearest, &c.
