Sleep, baby mine,
a golden star is burning
in God's clear blue above;
And O! my heart is learning
the miracle of love,
the miracle of love.

Sleep, baby mine,
I hear an angel singing above thy tiny bed;
the scent of heaven is clinging
about Thy tiny head,
about Thy tiny head. 

Sleep, baby mine,
to one who humbly bore Thee,
Thy cradle is a throne;
But all the days before Thee
are known to God alone,
are known to God alone.
