Peacefully my baby sleep, stars they have began to peep. O'er thy bed of yellow gold, angels white, their wings unflold.
Learned this in 6th grade chorus and many years later, as the mother of a little girl, I sang it to her. A beautiful song. When her daughter was born, we sang this song to her together. Now, my granddaughter is going to be a mother and she is going to have a little girl. I would love to have the lyrics (original) to pass on to her. She has asked me about this song and I hope to be able to find the lyrics for the new little girl in our lives.
