Where the Lilies Fade

This song is by Gothica and appears on the album The Cliff Of Suicide (2003).

(Lines by Christina Georgina Rossetti 1830-1894)
Thou sleepest where the lilies fade,
Thou dwellest where the lilies fade not:
Sweet, when thine earthly part decayed
Thy heavenly part decayed not.

Thou dwellest where the roses blow
The crimson roses bud and blossom:
While on thine eyes is heaped the snow -
The snow upon thy bosom.
