LYRICS

Lullaby for the Girls
by Mary Alice Amidon

Goodnight, I'll sing for you,
While you are sleeping I'll sing the night through;
Goodnight, dreams fill your head
While you lie safe in your bed.

Goodnight, I'll watch by you,
While you are sleeping I'll watch the night through;
Goodnight, stars shining bright,
I'll see you in dawn's early light.

Sweet dreams, the heavenly choir,
Angels attending with timbrel and lyre.
"Peace, peace" and music they'll play,
And while you rest they will stay.

Sweet dreams, and tunes of the day,
Melodies floating from hills faraway.
"Love, love" the words they will say,
And when you wake they'll away.

Goodnight, I'll dance for you,
While you are sleeping I'll dance the night through.
Goodnight, we'll swing and sway,
Tomorrow we'll dance all the day.

Goodnight, I'll be there with you,
While you are sleeping I'll stay the night through.
Goodnight, so near to my heart,
in hopes that we never shall part.

Soft, soft, sweet memories,
Birds on the wing and boats on the seas.
"Light, light" the moon with its glow,
and very soon you shall know.

Rock, rock, bye baby bye,
Tender and soft the place you shall lie.
Calm, calm the winds they do tell,
Rivers flow and all be well.

Goodnight, I'll sing for you,
While you are sleeping I'll sing the night through;
Goodnight, dreams fill your head
While you lie safe in your bed.
