Lyrics

sleep sweet baby take thy rest

god was watching he knew best

etched upon a headstone telling

words of farewell so compelling

 

here lies our dear rosemary

died in eighteen hundred and three

one year is all she lived to be

here lies our dear rosemary

 

sleep sweet baby take thy rest

god was watching he knew best

live we may and die we must

earth to earth and dust to dust

 

monuments of every war

soldiers buried by the score

they fought so we would fight no more

they're marching still through heaven's door

 

sleep brave soldiers take your rest

god was watching he knew best

live we may and die we must

earth to earth and dust

 

frederick my father dear

with others died too soon is here

in memories we hold them near 

in cemeteries year to year

 

sleep dear daddy take your rest

god was watching he knew best

live we may and die we must

earth to earth and dust to dust

 

now i'm wondering from stone to stone

treading now on human bone

is life not also ours to own

must god be watching all alone

 

and when we will take our rest

in this life we've done our best

live we may and die we must

earth to earth and dust to dust
