Sleep Baby Sleep Thy Mother Watch Doth


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

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

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

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.
