Here's one I wrote for my own wee one. I sing it every night, calling the quarters to protect him. It's a version of All Through the Night:

Martin's Welsh Lullaby

Sleep, my child, and peace attend thee
        All through the night.
I call guardians to defend thee
        All through the night.
From the east, the wind and weather,
South the sun, and west the water,
From the north, the earth our mother
        All through the night.

Drift, my child, on clouds of slumber
        All through the night,
Azure, crimson, jade, and umber
        All through the night.
Guarded by the owl unsleeping,
Cat a-prowling, frog a-leaping,
And the bear who watch is keeping
        All through the night.

Dream, my child, no fear nor sadness
        All through the night.
Only love and warmth and gladness
        All through the night.
Softly breathing, gently sighing,
Nothing wanting, no more crying,
In thy peaceful bed a-lying
        All through the night.

I just sang it for the little one. Who's next?

Claire

PS BW -- Knowing a name would help; it makes it easier to send the blessing.

FOREVER YOUNG
Bob Dylan

May God bless and keep you always,
May your wishes all come true,
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous,
May you grow up to be true,
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you.
May you always be courageous,
Stand upright and be strong,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy,
May your feet always be swift,
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift.
May your heart always be joyful,
May your song always be sung,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

Canadian, M.G., but I'm sure he wouldn't mind a bit.

Little babies with big heart problems tire very easily. Now Matthew is incredibly tired, as anyone is after surgery, all wired up in intensive care. I'm not allowed in to IC, so I sing this from home:

Bed is too small for my tiredness
Give me a hilltop with trees
Tuck a cloud up under my chin
Lord, blow the moon out please

Rock me to sleep in a cradle of dreams
Sing me a lullaby of leaves
Tuck a cloud up under my chin
Lord, blow the moon out please

reminds me of a John O'Connor lullaby..he is probably most known for his labor type songs..but I bet this is one that most people know..or parts of anyway..

Here's a little good night
Here's a little sleep tight
Here's a little pleasant dreams too
Don't you be forlorn I'll see you in the morn
Here's a little good night for you

I had a little fence and it cost me ten cents
I put it...so my dreams could come true
You don't need a ??? or a tweedle die die
Just a little good night will do

...the cows will go moo..

I refer you to THIS POST, containing my own funny variation on "Rock-a-bye baby", and a complete original called Lullaby for a Breast-Fed Baby".   If I do say so (and I do), this is a lovely little thing, with humor as lagniappe.

If anybody likes that Lullaby and wants the tune, PM me with your email address, and I'll be glad to send you a WAV file as an attachment.

Glad to hear that Matthew is out and on the road to recovery BW
I wish you all Blessings and Healing Energy
and Ill sing the wee Lamb a Fairy's Lullaby to night.

Dear babe 'tis a cradle of love that holds thee,
Shuh-heen-sheh, shuh-heen-sheh a-lo,
And softly the snowy white fleece enfolds thee,
Shuh-heen-sheh, shuh-heen-sheh a-lo,
In airy bowers I'll watch o'er thy sleep.
While branchy trees to the breezes sweep;
In airy bowers I'll watch o'er thy sleep.
Shuh-heen-sheh, shuh-heen-sheh a-lo,



Rest thee babe for soon thee will wake from slumber,
Shuh-heen-sheh, shuh-heen-sheh a-lo,
They shall fly as the fairy hosts sing you their numbers,
Shuh-heen-sheh, shuh-heen-sheh a-lo,
In airy bowers I'll watch o'er thy sleep.
While branchy trees to the breezes sweep;
In airy bowers I'll watch o'er thy sleep.
Shuh-heen-sheh, shuh-heen-sheh a-lo,



In chariots of gold o'er the ocean we'll wander,
Shuh-heen-sheh, shuh-heen-sheh a-lo,
With the hosts of the deep all the night we will squander
Shuh-heen-sheh, shuh-heen-sheh a-lo,
In airy bowers I'll watch o'er thy sleep.
While branchy trees to the breezes sweep:
In airy bowers I'll watch o'er thy sleep.
Shuh-heen-sheh, shuh-heen-sheh a-lo,

Rest well and sleep easy wee Bairn

Day 3. Intensive Care. Heavily drugged....barely awake at times.
Thanks for the singing. Maybe it sounds silly to say, but I do think that if everyone sang more lullabies, we'd all breathe deeper and planet would resonate at a better frequency.

Our bodies need us to rest in order to heal. As we sing the lullies for Matthew, may they reach him and aid in a restful healing. My nephew is also a Mathew (one "L," I mean "t," though) and has lots of good, strong energy to share with the wee one.

Singing a little song of love for you, little Matthew,

At 813p, Mudcat time, there are six stars which will line up, along with a full lunar eclipse. People all over the world will be intoning the great OM at that moment. There will be lots of healing energies projected which will have an effect on the world's resonance. May it be helpful for Matthew and all others in need of healing, of any sort.

In Peace & Harmonic Convergance:-)

Wasn't that a great eclipse? I love it when the moon turns red like that. And at a decent time of night to watch it, too! Several of us delayed a concert from starting on time - even the sound people were out there looking at the moon.

I was laughing when I thought you meant to say "L"'s, Kat. Now you've gone and spoiled it! :-)

I told Matthew's dad that we have been singing for Matthew, and he thinks that is 'awesome'.
