Sleep, sleep,
Sleep, sleep !
All nature now is steeping
Her sons in sleep,
their eylids close,
All living things in sweet repose
Are sleeping, sleeping !

Sleep, baby, sleep !
Peace o'er thee watch be keeping,
If from my bosom thou art torn,
Low in grave I'll lie forlorn.
Sleeping, Ah !
sleeping, sleeping.

Lyrics: from a Welsh Lullaby - translated by E. O. Jones
