Thread Name: Lyrics Versions: Brahms' Lullaby
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Brahms' Lullaby
My British grandmother used to sing this version:

Sleep my little one, sleep
Over watch I will keep
Stay warm in your nest
While moonbeams caress
When the dawn tints the sky,
May God bid thee arise
When the dawn tints the sky,
May God bid thee arise.

Holy angels abide,
May they watch by your side
In dreams they uphold
Heaven's portals of gold.
When the dawn tints the sky,
May God bid thee arise
When the dawn tints the sky,
May God bid thee arise.
