[Verse 1]
Sleep, darling, go to sleep,
Golden stars at you now peep
See, each twinkling little light
Comes to bid my babe good night,
Peaceful be your slumbers deep,
Sleep, my darling, go to sleep.

[Verse 2]
Sleep, my darling, go to sleep
Mother loving watch will keep,
Baby mine in peace may rest,
Angels guard your little nest,
Faithful watch they ever keep, sleep my darling,
Ah, sleep,

[Chorus]
Ah, go to sleep;
May God protect you, angel sweet,
Sleep, my darling, go to sleep,
Ah, go to sleep, nestle close to mother’s heart,
Then for slumber-land we’ll start.
Go to sleep.
