The sun's fading out of sight,
Baby dear, Baby dear;
But I'll be close by all night,
So do not fear.
Within your little room,
Shadows creep,
The shadows creep,
But love watches over thee,
Love watches over thee.
Sleep!
Do not fear;
Sleep,
Baby dear!

When shadows of darkness fall,
Through the night, through the night;
God's arms wrap around us all,
We're safe tonight.
The light may seem to fade;
Shadows creep,
The shadows creep,
Still God watches over thee,
God watches over thee.
Sleep!
Do not fear;
Sleep,
God is near.
