Happy little children wide awake all day

1 Happy little children,
Wide awake all day,
Light soon goes and night comes,
Sleepy then are they.
Close the dear eyes gently,
Close the tired eyes;
Sleep, sleep sweetly,
Till the morn says, Rise.

2 Lily bulbs and butterflies
All their rest must take;
But when spring calls softly,
Quickly then they wake.
So, our blessèd Jesus
Slept one Easter day,
Till the Lord’s voice called Him
To rise and live alway.
