Bright Sparkles in de Churchyard

BRIGHT SPARKLES IN DE CHURCHYARD

May de Lord — He will be glad of me —
In de heaven He 'll rejoice.
In de heaven, once,
In de heaven, twice,
In de heaven He 'll rejoice.

Bright sparkles in de churchyard
Give light unto de tomb;
Bright summer, spring's over,
Sweet flowers in der bloom.
My mother, once,
My mother, twice,
My mother she 'll rejoice.
In de heaven once, etc.

Mother, rock me in de cradle all de day; —
All de day, etc.
Oh, mother, don't yer love yer darlin' child?
Oh, rock me in de cradle all de day.
Rock me, etc.
You may lay me down to sleep, my mother dear,
Oh, rock me in de cradle all de day.
