by George Cooper (1840 - 1927)

Lena, our loved one is gone
Language: English 
Lena, the pride of our home, 
Gone from the earth. Oh! where does she roam? 
Fond hearts still sigh o'er her tomb, 
Lena, our loved one is gone. 

Lena the gentle and fair 
Happy by day and at night free from care, 
Lena, with light waving hair, 
Lena, our loved one is gone. 

Lena, with young tender eyes, 
Lending to earth the light of the skies 
Lena's dear mem'ry ne'er dies, 
Lena our loved one is gone. 

Pure as the dew drop was she 
Smiling on earth ever joyous and free, 
Dear, dear to sad memory 
Lena our loved one is gone.
