Sleep My Baby
© 2011 Tom D Blakely
Sleep my baby, little darling
As you hear this gentle song.
Tiny girl so bright and charming
Rest my dearest, ’til the dawn. . .
May the love of God surround you
And protect the child He made.
May His light shine in the darkness
As His angels guard your bed.
To a world so mean and cruel
We have brought you, were we wrong?
You are gentle and so fragile
May you never suffer harm. . .
