Sleep my child and peace attend thee
All through the night
Guardian angels God will send thee
All through the night
Soft the drowsy hours are creeping
Hill and vale in slumber sleeping,
Love alone his watch is keeping
All through the night.

While the moon her watch is keeping
All through the night
While the weary world is sleeping
All through the night
O'er thy spirit gently stealing
visions of delight revealing;
Breathes a pure and holy feeling
All through the night.

Hark! a solemn bell is ringing
Clear through the night;
Thou, my love, art heav’nward winging,
Home through the night.
Earthly dust from off thee shaken
Soul immortal, thou shalt waken
With thy last dim journey taken,
Home through the night.
