Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep.

Now I lay me down to sleep, And the blue eyes, dark and deep,
Let their snowy curtains down, edged with fringes golden brown;
All day long the angels fair I've been watching over there;
Heaven's not far, 'tis just in sight; now they're calling we, good-night!
Kiss me, mother, do not weep; now I lay me down to sleep.

Over there, just over there, I shall say my morning prayer;
Kiss me, mother; do not weep; now I lay me down to sleep.

Tangled ringlets all smooth now, looped back from the waxen brow;
Little hands so dimpled white, clasped together, cold to-night.
Where the mossy, daisied sod brought sweet messages from God;
Two pale lips with kisses pressed, there we left her to her rest,
And the dews of evening weep where we laid her down to sleep.

Over there, just over there, list the angels' morning prayer!
Lispings low through fancy creep, now I lay me down to sleep.
