While the quiet stars are gleaming,
And the birds to their rest have flown;
Then I watch my darling dreaming,
Ling'ring by her side alone.
Oh, what visions wake to cheer me,
Angels, too, their vigils keep,
For their pinions hover near me
While my little one's asleep.

Songs of angels bless and cheer her
While the shadows round us creep;
All things lovely linger near her
When my little one's asleep.

Golden tresses now are shining
O'er the pillow soft and white;
Oh, the sunny smile reclining
On her placid brow each night.
In the land of dreams she wanders,
Where no eyes in sadness weep;
O'er its joy and bosom ponders,
While my little one's asleep.-Refrain.

Fondly now my heart is praying
For my darling day by day;
Little feet, now tired with playing,
May they never go astray.
Stars the azure skies adorning,
Watch her slumbers calm and deep;
Angels hover near till morning,
While my little one's asleep.-Refrain.
