Good night, good night, my sweet child,
God’s angels will protect you.
May you greet the morning light,
With flowers kissed with dew.
Lift up your rested head, my child,
While birds sing songs of gladness.
God brings lovely things your way
To take away your sadness.
Though life can have stormy skies,
It also has bright sunshine
To light up your darkest days.
So, leave your troubles behind.
Love will come to you, my child,
When you least expect it.
Just keep a receptive heart
To house the Holy Spirit.
For someday soon, God will come
And take you home with Him.
You will fly through sapphire skies,
Hear songs from the Seraphim.
