Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 46
Hush-a-Bye, Little One, Sleep.
Copyright, 1894. by Widmer-Stigler Music Tub. Co.
Words by Cy Warman. Music by Joe Newman.
Nature is sinking to peaceful repose, hush-a-bye, little one, sleep;
Sweetly the dewdrop's asleep on the rose, hush-a-bye, little one, sleep;
Heaven shield father, where'er he may be, whether on land or the billowy sea,
And bring him back to his baby and me, hush-a-bye, little one, sleep.
Lightly the ripples play over the rill, hush-a-bye, little one sleep:
Singing the roses to sleep on the hill, hush-a-bye, little one, sleep; [winds
Softly the katydid sings in the vines, up from the lowlands the murmuring
Steal thro' the stillness to play with the pines, hush-a-bye, little one, sleep.
