Peaceful slumbering on the ocean,
Seamen fear no danger nigh,
The winds and waves in gentle motion,
Sooth them with their Lullaby.

Lullaby, Lullaby.

Is the wind tempestuous blowing?
Still no danger they descry,
The guileless heart, its boon bestowing,
Soothes them with its lullaby.

Lullaby, lullaby.

From the libretto by James Cobb for the opera The Pirates
Stephen John Seymour Storace (1762–1796)
