Slumber, my darling, in silent repose
While innocent dreams o'er thy memory flows;
For mamma is watching with fond, loving care,
While angels are chanting their sweet evening prayer,
Thy tiny white hands lying over thy breast,
A soft, gentle smile o'er thy sweet tranquil rest;
The calm, peaceful moon through the window will peep,
While mamma is singing her darling to sleep.

Slumber, my darling, my own little dear;
Slumber, my darling, for mamma is asar.
As twilight's faint shadows so silently creep,
Then mamma will sing little baby to sleep.

Slumber, my darling, for mamma is near,
While night passes over and day doth appear;
Thy lips always welcome a fond, loving kiss,
For sweet are the dreams of the beautiful bliss.
The last shades of twilight have scarce passed away
When in totters baby from innocent play;
Her toys cast aside, to her cradle she'll creep
And say, Mamma, sing little darling to sleep.-Refrain.

Slumber, my darling; the calm, gentle breeze
Is singing its lay as it plays on the trees;
The beautiful birds in their snug, cozy nest
Like thee in thy dreaming so peacefully rest.
My own little darling I treasure with care,
With cheeks like the roses and long, curly hair;
Those bonny blue eyes from the cradle will peep,
While mamma is singing her darling to sleep.- Refrain.
