SLUMBER SONG.
[English words] John Erwin. [Music] Johannes Brahms.

Hushaby and goodnight.
In the sky stars are bright,
While roses in bloom
Fill with fragrance the room.
With the morn, if God will,
You will waken again.
With the morn, if God will,
You will waken again.

Hushaby; have no fear.
Little angels are near.
Their watch they will keep
While my baby's asleep.
Dream the dark night away
Till God's sun brings the day.
Dream the dark night away
Till God's sun brings the day.
