Angels Are Watching Baby Sleep.
Copyright, 1889, by Geo. M. Klenk & Co.
Words and Music by Will E, Nankivelle.
What is a home without sweet baby?
Life seems so weary without its care;
I have a dear little cherub darling,
Angel from heaven so bright and fair.
Laughing and playing in innocent glee.
Filling our hearts with pure ecstasy;
Earth with its riches, naught can compare,
With one little kiss from her cheeks so fair.
Sweet little face from the window so bright,
Watching for papa from morning till night.
There in the cradle in slumber so deep.
Angels are watching sweet baby sleep.
Angels are watching baby slumber,
Dear little eyes now are closed in sleep;
While mother gently rocks the cradle,
Singing that lullaby soft and sweet.
See her smiles play o'er her beautiful face,
Pretty blue eyes and such innocent grace,
God will protect her slumbers deep.
The angels are watching sweet baby sleep.- Chorus.
