Nighttime comes with shadows trailing;
Baby's eyes are open wide,
Watching what the twilight pale
Hides behind her purple veil.
Sleep and rest, sleep and rest,
Momma knows that sleep is best.

Sleep shall take you where the lilies
Star the quiet pool with light,
Where the winds are whistling mild,
Glad to greet a weary child.
Sleep and rest, sleep and rest,
Momma knows that sleep is best.
