1. Years have pass'd,sweetsister  An- na, Since we laid thee down to sleep, Where the flow-ers wave a - bovethee, O'er thy slum-bers watchto  keep;
2. We have miss'd thee, gen-tle  sis - ter, Miss'd thy voice so soft and mild,  And thine eyes,from out whose sweetness,Heaven's brightest sun-shine smiled;
3. Years are gone, sweet sis-ter  An - na, Sil . ver locks are blending now, With the threads of jet and  am - ber,And there's fur-rows on our brow;

Yet thy spir-it breathes a - round us, As  in days of long a - go, Though thy form is low - ly  ly - ing,Where the fra-grant lil-ies  blow.

Yet 'tis sweet,dear, to re - mem-ber, Smiles we loved so long a - go, Though thy form is low - ly  ly - ing,Where the fra-grant lil-ies  blow.
We wil soon be with thee, dar-ling, Where we laid thee long a - go, And our hearts,likethine,be sleep-ing,Where the fra-grantlil-ies  blow.
