Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Sleep, baby, sleep!
Sleep, darling, sleep!
Gently close thy laughing eye,
Night is dropping from the sky;
Sleep, baby, sleep!
Sleep, darling, sleep!

2 Sleep, baby, sleep!
Sleep, darling, sleep!
Birds within their sheltered nest
Now are seeking downy rest;
Sleep, baby, sleep!
Sleep, darling, sleep!

3 Sleep, baby, sleep!
Sleep, darling, sleep!
Flocks are silent in the field,
Roving winds to slumber yield;
Sleep, baby, sleep!
Sleep, darling, sleep!

4 Sleep, baby, sleep!
Sleep, darling, sleep!
One there is who watches still,
He will guard thy life from ill;
Sleep, baby, sleep!
Sleep, darling, sleep!
