1 Sleep, baby, sleep!
Thy mother watch doth keep
With love that knows no weariness,
Untiring in its tenderness.
Sleep, baby, sleep!

2 Sleep, baby, sleep!
The angels watch will keep,
And whisper as they hover nigh
Of heavenly love beyond the sky.
Sleep, baby, sleep!

3 Sleep, baby, sleep!
God grant thee slumbers deep;
And peacefully as dews of heaven
Lie cradled in the flowers at even,
Sleep, baby, sleep!

4 Sleep, baby, sleep!
No weary watch we'll keep:
When Jesus calls us to His breast,
There sweetly we'll together rest,
Sleep, baby, sleep!

Amen.
