Christmas 2012


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 dale in slumber sleeping 
I my loving vigil 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 

Though I roam a minstrel lonely 
All through the night 
My true harp shall praise sing only 
All through the night 
Love's young dream, alas, is over 
Yet my strains of love shall hover 
Near the presence of my lover 
All through the night 

Hark, a solemn bell is ringing 
Clear through the night 
Thou, my love, art heavenward winging 
Home through the night 
Earthly dust from off thee shaken 
Soul immortal shalt thou awaken 
With thy last dim journey taken 
Home through the night
