Go to sleep now O true love of mine,
Hold in your heart the comfort Divine;
Angels above you
Guard you and watch you,
Sleepless their vigil can never tire.
With all your memory cherish today,
All we have shared each life-long day:
Angels of light will
scatter the darkness
Tenderly lifting the weight of pain.
You have I loved since we were so young,
With you I sang each beautiful song;
Angels of life
O Give me your voice,
Help me to sing our last lullaby.
Words: Andrew Hawes (1954 – )
