A baby was sleeping;
Its mother was weeping;
For her husband was far on the wild raging sea;
And the tempest was swelling
Round the fisherman's dwelling;
And she cried, "Dermot, darling! O come back to me!"
Her beads while she numbered
The baby still slumbered,
And smiled in her face as she bended her knee:
"O, blessed be that warning,
My child, thy sleep adorning, --
For I know that the angels are whispering with thee.
"And while they are keeping
Bright watch o'er thy sleeping,
O, pray to them softly, my baby, with me, --
And say thou wouldst rather
They'd watch o'er thy father!
For I know that the angels are whispering with thee."
The dawn of the morning
Saw Dermot returning,
And the wife wept with joy her babe's father to see;
And closely caressing
Her child with a blessing,
Said, "I knew that the angels were whispering with thee."
