1  Dream, baby, dream,
The stars are glowing,
Hear'st thou the stream?
'Tis softly flowing,
All gently glide the hours,
Above no tempest lowers,
Below are fragrant flow'rs,
In silence growing.

2  Dream, baby, dream,
Thine eyelids quiver,
Know'st thou the theme
Of yon soft river?
It saith, "Be calm, be sure,
Unfailing, gentle, pure,
So shall thy life endure
Like mine, for ever."
