Sleep my mother, off to dreamland
Warm and cozy will it prove
Round thee angel wings are folding
holding you in heavenly love
There shall no one come to harm thee
Naught shall ever break thy rest
Sleep my father, here in quiet
Sleep enfolded in our nest.
Sleep serenely, Mama, slumber
Lovely mommy, gently sleep;
I will visit you in dreams
Oh, my mother do not weep.
All the angels smile in heaven
When thy happy smile they see.
Dost thou on them smile while slumb’ring
Wrapped in wings so peacefully.
Do not fear the sound of a breeze
Brushing leaves against the door.
Do not dread the murmuring seas,
Lonely waves washing the shore.
Sleep my love, I’m always near,
While in slumber in our nest,
Angels smiling, and beguiling,
Holy angels guard thy rest.
This song comes from the traditional Welsh lullaby Suo Gan. It has always been a favorite lullaby because I love the idea of our children and other loved ones singing us to sleep from the heavens as we rest in a nest of angel wings.
