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.

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]
