Soft on the sands of the silver sea,
Dream, my little one, dream!
The breakers melt in melody,
Dream, my little one, dream!

Round thy cradle floats their song,
Peace, on thy slumber, peace!
Father will come, though the night be long,
Peace, on thy slumber, peace!

The wind makes music among the leaves,
Dream, my little one, dream!
List to its lullaby under the eaves,
Dream, my little one, dream!

Fanning thy curls in the candle glow,
Peace, on thy slumber, peace!
Father will come when the moon is low,
Peace, on thy slumber, peace!

Hark to its echo in mother’s breast,
Dream, my little one, dream!
Father will come from the golden west,
Dream, my little one, dream!

Song of the wind and song of the sea,
Peace, in thy slumber, peace!
Song of my heart in harmony,
Peace, on thy slumber, peace!
