Two Lullabies and a Prayer

Little child—little child,
Are you sleeping now?
Little child—little child,
As the lights go down.
Lovely child—lovely child,
It will be all right.
Lovely child—lovely child,
With this lullaby.

The moon is waking from her sleep
And singing in the light.
She picked your nightgown from the heap
…….Pulled it o’er your head
…….Tucked you into bed
And looking at your pretty face,
Whispered you “Good night!”

Wonderful Lady,
Please hear my plea:
I am a wretch
Long waiting on thee.
These are my flowers,
Given to bless;
These are my sorrows,
Please put them to rest.
