Lyrics

"Slumber My Darling"
Stephen Foster

Slumber, my darling, thy mother is near,
Guarding thy dreams from all terror and
fear,

Sunlight has pass'd and the twilight has
gone,

Slumber, my darling, the night's coming on.


Sweet visions attend thy sleep,
Fondest, dearest to me,

While others their revels keep,
I will watch over thee.



Slumber, my darling, the birds are at rest,
The wandering dews by the flow'rs are
caressed,

Slumber, my darling, I'll wrap thee up
warm,

And pray that the angels will shield thee
from harm. 


Slumber, my darling, till morn's blushing
ray

Brings to the world the glad tidings of
day;

Fill the dark void with thy dreamy delight
Slumber, thy mother will guard thee
tonight,


Thy pillow shall sacred be

From all outward alarms;
 Thou, thou are
the world to me

In thine innocent charms.



Slumber, my darling, the birds are at rest,
The wandering dews by the flow'rs are
caressed,

Slumber, my darling, I'll wrap thee up
warm,

And pray that the angels will shield thee
from harm
