Thread Name: Lyrics Versions: Brahms' Lullaby
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Brahms' Lullaby
This version has been passed down in my family for many years:

Lullaby, and goodnight,
in the soft evening light,
like a rose is in its bed,
lay down your sweet head.
When the morning is here,
I will wake you my dear,
when the morning is here,
I will wake you my dear.

Lullaby, and goodnight,
let the angels of light
bring in dreamland, for thee,
the Christ child on tree;
go to sleep, close your eyes,
dream of sweet paradise,
go to sleep, close your eyes,
dream of sweet paradise.
