Representative Text

1 Evening shades around us gather,
Fades the light in yonder sky,
Soft and low the voice of nature
Sings again her lullaby.

Refrain:
Lullaby, lullaby,
Soft and low the voice of nature
Sings again her lullaby,
Soft and low the voice of nature
Sings again her lullaby,

2 See the lily on her bosom
Gently close its languid eye,
Now the birds their wings are folding
While she sings her lullaby. [Refrain]

3 Father, hear Thy weary children,
To Thy bosom may we fly,
Ah, thy tender love can soothe us
With a sweeter lullaby. [Refrain]

4 Underneath Thy wings protect us;
Guard, oh, guard us from the sky;
Thou hast taught the voice of nature
How to sing her lullaby. [Refrain]
