Sleep, my baby, sleep my child;
Soon to be hailed by a world beguiled.
Soon to be praised in hymns and psalms,
Sleep for now in your mother's arms.

Lullaby, Sleep in peace my own dear child.
Ah, They will kneel and call you King;
'Til that time one voice will sing:
Lullaby, Sleep in peace my own dear child.

Sleep, my baby, on my breast,
On this night serene and bless'd;
lauded by the hosts above,
Guarded by a mother's love.

Lullaby, Sleep in peace dear child.
Lullaby, Sleep in peace my own dear child.
