Lyrics

VP_013569 Verse 1Soft be thy slumbers, Rude cares depart, Visions in numbers Cheer thy young heart. Dream on while bright hours And fond hopes remain, Blooming like smiling bowers For thee, Ellen Bayne. Chorus 1Gentle slumbers o'er thee glide, Dreams of beauty round thee bide While I linger by thy side, Sweet Ellen Bayne. Verse 2Dream not in anguish, Dream not in fear; Love shall not languish; Fond ones are near. Sleeping or waking, In pleasure or pain Warm hearts will beat for thee, Sweet Ellen Bayne. Verse 3Scenes that have vanished Smile on thee now, Pleasures once banished Play round thy brow, Forms long departed Greet thee again Soothing thy dreaming heart, Sweet Ellen Bayne.
