Slumber on, little one,
The sun has sunk low and red;
Slumber on, peaceful one,
Darkness is now overhead;
The wind blows strong from the west,
The birds are all in their nest,
Tiny one, slumber on,
Slumber and take thy rest,
Tiny one, slumber on,
Slumber and take thy rest.

Slumber on, little one,
Thy daddy to sea now goes;
Slumber on, peaceful one,
Angels will guard thy repose;
The moon’s beginning to peep,
Its rays will shine o’er the deep,
Tiny one, slumber on,
Slumber and take thy sleep,
Tiny one, slumber on,
Slumber and take thy sleep.
