Sleep my baby, at my breast,
‘Tis a mother’s arms round you.
Make yourself a snug, warm nest.
Feel my love forever new.
Harm will not meet you in sleep,
Hurt will always pass you by.
Child beloved, always you’ll keep,
In sleep gentle, mother’s breast nigh.
Sleep in peace tonight, sleep,
O sleep gently, what a sight.*

 

*Suo Gan, a traditional Welsh lullaby. Lyrics by Robert Bryan. I copied the lyrics from the following source: Click here for a recording of Anthony Way and St. Paul’s Cathedral Choir singing Suo Gan. Published on You Tube by Somewheremaybe, Nov 13, 2015, with lyrics and photo compilation.
