Oh! Sister Dear.

Music with Piano-Forte accompaniment, published by FIRTH, POND AND CO., 547 Broadway, New York.

MY Sisters dear, o'er this pale cheek
The tear of sorrow oft was stealing;
And when thy looks betrayed the feeling,
Thy lips refused thy tongue to speak.
But thou hadst comfort, Sister dear,
When I shed for thee a tear,
When I shed for thee a tear.

And now, alas! I weep alone,
By thee, my Sister dear, forsaken;
Dark thought arise, and fears awaken,
Thy fate, alas! to me unknown,
And down my pallid cheek the tear
Will ever flow, my Sister dear.
