Sleep my baby, at my breast Tis a mother's arms round you.
Make yourself a snug, warm nest.
Feel my love forever new.
Harm will not meet you in sleep, Hurt will always pass you by.
Child beloved, always you'll keep, In sleep gentle, mother's breast nigh.
Sleep in peace tonight, sleep,O sleep gently, what a sight.
A smile I see in slumber deep,What visions make your face bright?
Are the angels above smiling,At you in your peaceful rest?
Are you beaming back while in Peaceful slumber on mother's breast?
Do not fear the sound, it's a breeze Brushing leaves against the door.
Do not dread the murmurring seas, Lonely waves washing the shore.
Sleep child mine, there's nothing here, While in slumber at my breast,
Angels smiling, have no fear, Holy angels guard your rest.
