Coming to carry, coming, sweet Mary
Lay down my body, my sins I will bare thee (fine)
Now I lay me down to sleep,
Lord, I pray my soul to keep
When the bells a-ring out,
I'm a gonna sing out.
Mama, don't you, Mama, don't you
Mama, don't you weep, oh no!
I know where I'm going
Got no hurry, no worry, nothing to hide.
Now I lay me down to rest
When I know I've done my best
When my day is over
I'll be coming over.
I've got nothing to hide, I'm satisfied
Gonna rest my soul on the other side.
dal $egno al fine (bis)
