Can anyone share information about a song called "Entreaty (A Love-Song)" by composer Wilson G. Smith? I believe it was copyrighted in 1888. I'm looking for the full lyrics and/or sheet music. I have seen a couple places where you can buy a sheet music download, but I was kind of hoping to find it in the public domain somewhere.

I have had this music handed down from my grandfather and have just rescued and printed it off. The lyrics are indistinct but I am trying to rescue them too

The sheet music can be seen in a book called Anthology of American Song (New York: G. Schirmer, ©1906), page 6?which is viewable online (click the link).


ENTREATY (A Love-Song)
Words by Ira Allen, Jr.; music by Wilson G. Smith, ©1888.

Last night I dreamed your golden hair
Lay soft against my face,
And that your fingers in my hands
Had found a resting place.
I dreamed your girlish lips met mine
And that your dewy breath
Did whisper thoughts against my cheek
As would give life to death
Did whisper thoughts against my cheek
As would give life to death.

O little maiden, whose soft lips
Are sweeter than May dew,
Just lean a moment on my breast
And make my dream come true!
In dreams last night your golden hair
Lay soft against my face,
And clasped in mine your dainty hands
Had found a resting place.
Oh, lean one moment on my breast
And make my dreams come true.
