Hush, my dear one, sleep serenely; Now, my lovely, slumber deep. Mother rocks you , humming lowly; Close your eyes, now got to sleep
by Donald Mee
The refrain ends with the words; I will hold you, close enfold you, Close your eyes, now got to sleep.
I played the bagpipes at the funeral of a four year old, in 1997 in Princeton,NJ. At the time my son was also four years old. I recently found the program for the servicel with the words of the Lullaby. I cried then and I cried tonight when
I read them again.
Is there a recording of the tune?
