Lullaby, and good night, With pink roses bedight, With lilies o'erspread, Is my baby's sweet head. Lay you down now, and rest, May your slumber be blessed! Lay you down now, and rest, May thy slumber be blessed! Lullaby, and good night, You're your mother's delight, Shining angels beside My darling abide. Soft and warm is your bed, Close your eyes and rest your head. Soft and warm is your bed, Close your eyes and rest your head. Sleepyhead, close your eyes. Mother's right here beside you. I'll protect you from harm, You will wake in my arms. Guardian angels are near, So sleep on, with no fear. Guardian angels are near, So sleep on, with no fear. Lullaby, and sleep tight. Hush! My darling is sleeping, On his sheets white as cream, With his head full of dreams. When the sky's bright with dawn, He will wake in the morning. When noontide warms the world, He will frolic in the sun.
