Slumber my darling Thy mother is near
Guarding thy dreams From all terror and fear
Sunlight has past And the twilight has gone Slumber my darling The night's coming on
Sweet visions attend thy sleep Fondest dearest to me
While others their revels keep I will watch over thee
Slumber my darling The birds are at rest. Wandering dews By the flowers are caressed
Slumber my darling I'll wrap thee up warm Pray that the angels Will shield thee from harm
Slumber my darling Til morn's blushing ray Brings to the world The glad tidings of day
Fill the dark void With thy dreaming delight Slumber, thy mother Will guard thee tonight
