First Line: Sleep, sleep, my darling!
Last Line: Soon 'twill be day.


Sleep, sleep, my darling!
Eyes of blue, close.
Sweet be thy slumber,
Calm thy repose.
Now over the wide world
Night gathers fast.
Slumber, my darling,
Day comes at last.

Sleep, sleep, my darling!
Golden head, rest.
Bright be thy visions,
Dreams ever blest.
Zephyrs of evening
Fan thy hot brow.
Slumber, my darling,
God watches now.

Hush, hush, my loved one!
Why dost thou weep?
Angels watch o'er thee,
Sleep, darling, sleep.
Now sails the bright moon
Through the dark sky.
Slumber, my darling,
Mother is nigh.

Sleep, sleep, my dear one!
Naught must thou fear.
He who has made thee
Still watches near.
Life is before thee,
Joy strew thy way.
Slumber, my darling --
Soon 'twill be day.
