Abstract

In the Valley by the Mill
Near the gently flowing rill
Will you Come when all is still
Will you Come when all is still
When the day light fades away
Thither thither I will stray
I have something sweet to say
Will you come will you come
I have something sweet to say
Will you come
When the Stars are side by side
Like some lovers in the Sky
Love thy gentle feet shall guide
Where his sweetest flowets lie
When the Moon is faintly seen
Rising thro' yon willows green
In the valley i shall be waiting anxiously for thee
In the valley I shall be waiting anxiously for thee
Thither thither I will stray when the daylight fades away
I have something sweet to say
Will you Come will you come
I have something sweet to say
Will you come.

As the flower to the Bee
As the blossom on the tree
Soar't thou my love to me so ar't thou love to me
Like the Bird that sinks to rest
In his own lov'd peaceful nest and thy smiles to make me blest
Let me be let me be and thy smiles to make me blest
Let me be.

Not with gay hearts love doth dwell his home the dewy spangled dell
O how sweet it is to Rove hand in hand with those we love
When the Moon is faintly seen rising thro' yon willows green
In the valley I shall be waiting anxiously for thee
In the Valley I shall be waiting anxiously for thee
Thither thither I will stray when the day light fades away
I have something sweet to say
Will you Come will you come
I have something sweet to say will you Come.
