First Line: Baby, baby dear
Last Line: Earth and heaven are one.
Subject(s): Blake, William (1757-1827)


To a tune of Blake's

Baby, baby dear,
Earth and heaven are near
Now, for heaven is here.

Heaven is every place
Where your flower-sweet face
Fills our eyes with grace.

Till your own eyes deign
Earth a glance again,
Earth and heaven are twain.

Now your sleep is done,
Shine, and show the sun
Earth and heaven are one.
