Safely Rocked in Mother's Arms.
Copyright, 1887, by Chas. D. Blake & Co.
Gently, slowly to and fro. sways the old arm chair.
Tenderly the evening breeze stirs the curls of golden hair.
Drowsy eye-lids softly closing, lullaby has worked its charms,
Slumber deep has come to baby, safely rocked In mother's arms.
Lullaby, sweet lullaby, silver stars begin to peep,
Sweet lullaby, hush all sound while baby sleeps;
Now baby's sorrows have all vanished, sooth'd by lullaby's sweet charms.
Gently, slowly to and fro, lullaby, sweet lullaby, safely rocked in mother's arms.
Snow-white brow and rosy cheeks, parted lips two teeth disclose,
All that mother loves on earth safe within her arms repose,
Oh! the pray'rs to heaven whispered, pow'r to shield him from all harm.
May he find in years of sorrow sweetest rest in mother's arms.-Chorus.
