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.
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, 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.
