Stream it now: https://tabernaclechoir.ffm.to/lullaby The songs lyrics are from the poem “A Lullaby” by Eugene Field. The stars are twinkling in the skies, The earth is lost in slumbers deep; So hush, my sweet, and close thine eyes, And let me lull thy soul to sleep. Compose thy dimpled hands to rest, And like a little birdling lie Secure within thy cozy nest Upon my loving mother breast, And slumber to my lullaby, So hushaby, hushaby, Hush my sweet and close thine eyes, And slumber to my lullaby, So hushaby, O hushaby, The moon is singing to a star The little song I sing to you; The father sun has strayed afar, As baby’s sire is straying too. And so the loving mother moon Sings to the little star on high; And as she sings, her gentle tune Is borne to me, and thus I croon For thee, my sweet, that lullaby Of hushaby, hushaby, Hush my sweet and close thine eyes, And slumber to my lullaby, So hushaby, O hushaby, There is a little one asleep That does not hear his mother’s song; But angel watchers–as I weep– Surround his grave the night-tide long. And as I sing, my sweet, to you, Oh, would the lullaby I sing– The same sweet lullaby he knew While slumb’ring on this bosom too– Were borne to him on angel’s wing! So hushaby, hushaby, Lullaby, Lullaby, Lullaby So hushaby, So hushaby, Lullaby, Hushaby, Lullaby
