When with glory dies the day,
And the wind is lulled to sleep,
When the sun’s last lingering ray
Gilds the mountain’s rugged steep;
While the blue waves of the sea,
With the twilight peace possessed,
Lullaby, lullaby,
Rest, my dear one,
rest, my sweet one,
rest, my loved one,
rest, rest, ah! rest.

When the twilight dies away,
And the darkening shadows creep,
When the moon, with silver ray,
Watches o’er a world asleep;
When the wandering zephyr free
Woos the wild-bird in her nest—
Lullaby, lullaby,
Rest, my dear one,
rest, my sweet one,
rest, my loved one,
rest, rest, ah! rest.
