We are searching for the words to when the dewy light was fading

When the dewy light was fading
And the sky in beauty smiled,
Came this whisper, like an echo,
From a pale and dying child:

"Mother, in that golden region
With its pearly gates so fair,
Up among the happy angels,
Is there room for Mary there?

"Mother, raise me just a moment;
You'll forgive me when I say
You were angry when you told me
I was always in your way.

"You were sorry in a moment,
I could read it on your brow,
But you'll not recall it, mother;
You must never mind it now.

'When my baby sister calls me
And you hear my voice no more;
When she plays among the roses
By our little cottage door;

"Never chide her when you're angry.
Do it kindly and in love:
That you both may dwell with Mary,
In the sunny land above.

Then she plumed her snowy pinions
Till she folded them to rest.
Mid the welcome song of rapture
On the loving Saviour's breast.

In the bright and golden regions,
With its pearly gates so fair,
She is singing with the angels.
Yes, there's room for Mary there.

I knew this song as a child, and now I'm 80 years old, Thanks for the lyrics, I had forgotten some of them,
