Sleep Baby Sleep Sleep Darling Sleep


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

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

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

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!
