Words by J. A. Frazer, Jr. Music by E. A. Phelps.

Bye, oh bye, my baby darling, bye, oh bye, my hope and joy;
Mother's hand will lock the cradle, sleep, oh sleep, my baby boy.
Lower the curtains o'er thy blue eyes, sleep, my baby, sleep;
Smiling like the summer skies, to slumber land now creep.

Bye, baby, my darling, for mother is near,
So tenderly watching thee; sleep on, do not fear.
Bye, baby, my darling, sleep on while you may;
Life's struggle comes all too soon, as waking with day.

Thou art now at life's bright dawning, trouble all too soon thou'lt know;
Gladly mother would defend thee from the world and all its woe.
Mother would fold thee close to her breast, sleep, my baby, sleep;
In all the world she loves the best, all harm from thee would she keep.-Ref
