Two little orphans a boy and a girl
Sat beside the old church door
The little girls cheeks were as brown as the curls
That fell on the dress that she wore
The little boy's coat was all tattered and torn
And a tear stood in each little eye
Why don't you run home to your momma I said
And this was the maidens momma got sick, angels took her away
To a home they say warm and bright
She said she'd come for her darlins some day
And perhaps she's coming tonight
We can't earn our bread, we're too little she said
Jim's five and I'm only seven
We can't earn our living since Papa is dead
And our darling Mama's in heaven

Papa was lost out at sea long ago
We waited all night by the shore
For he was a lifesaving captain you know
And he never came back anymore

Perhaps, there's no room up in Heaven, she said
For two little darlings to keep
She then placed her hand under Jims little head
She kissed him, and both fell asleep

The preacher came early to ring the church bell
And found them beneath the snow white
The angels made room for two orphans to dwell
In heaven with Mama that night
