Sleep, Baby, Sleep

17th English Folk Song & Nursery Rhyme

Sleep, baby, sleep
Our cottage vale is deep
The little lamb is on the green
With snowy fleece so soft and clean
Sleep, baby, sleep

Sleep, baby, sleep
I would not, would not weep
The little lamb he never cries
And bright and happy are his eyes
Sleep, baby, sleep.

Sleep, baby, sleep,
Near where the woodbines creep;
Be always like the lamb so mild,
A kind and sweet and gentle child,
Sleep, baby, sleep

Sleep, baby sleep,
Thy rest shall angels keep.
While on the grass the lamb shall feed
And never suffer want nor need
Sleep, baby, sleep
Sleep, baby, sleep
