Darling Go to Rest


Evening shades are falling;
Time to go to rest;
Stars are softly calling
Darling to her nest.
Sweet the sleep before thee
Till morning light;
God in heaven watch o’er thee,
My love, good-night.

Time to go to bed, love;
Lay thee down to sleep:
Weary little head, love,
God will safely keep.
Now the little kiss, love,
Arms clasp so tight;
Pleasant dreams of bliss, love;
My love, good-night.
