Sleep, my love, and peace attend thee,
All through the night;
Guardian angels God will lend thee,
All through the night;

Soft the drowsy hours are creeping,
Hill and vale in slumber sleeping,
Love alone his watch is keeping,
All through the night.

Though I roam a minstrel lonely,
All through the night;
My true heart shall praise thee only
All through the night;

Love’s young dream, alas, is over
Yet my strains of love shall hover
Near the presence of my lover
All through the night.

Hark! The bell is ringing,
Clear through the night.
Thou, my love, art heav'nward winging,
Home through the night.

Earthly dust from off thee shaken,
Soul immortal, though shalt waken,
With thy last dim journey taken;
Home through the night.
