about

This is a lullaby that both of our mothers sang to us when we were children. I adapted the lyrics to how I heard them growing up, which is slightly different from the traditional lyrics.

lyrics

Sleep, my child, let peace attend thee
All through the night
Guardian angels God will lend thee
All through the night
Soft the drowsy hours are creeping
Hill and veil and sunlight sleeping
I my loving vigil keeping
All through the night

While the moon her watch is keeping
All through the night
While the weary world is sleeping
All through the night
O'er thy spirit gently stealing
Visions of delight revealing
Breathe a pure and holy feeling
All through the night

Hark, a solemn bell is ringing
Clear through the night
Thou, my love, art heavenward winging
Home through the night
Earthly dust from off thee shaken
Soul immortal shall awaken
With thy last dim journey taken
Home through the night
