Sleep my child, the night is falling,
Darkness hides your cares away.
Sleep my darling, night is calling,
Follow close the sounding of your name.
Follow to the land of slumber,
Into fields of grass and rain.
Here the stars are fading embers,
Heed not their cold light again.
Close your eyes, and fall in peace.
You are safe in my arms,
They won’t hurt you now my love.
They can’t hurt you darling, now that you’re asleep.
Dream my child, oh dream for mother,
warm colors, soft and sweet.
Dream of bread and tea and sugar.
Dream of one day’s, someday’s yet to be,
