“Sleep, My Child” Lyrics

Sleep, my child, sleep
Your mother has gone away
Sleep, my child, sleep
She won’t be back this way

Gone like the mist
When kissed
By the morning sun
Gone, now she’s gone
And she, my only one

God, give me courage
To raise my little boy
God, just some courage
And replace my woe with joy

True have I been
And true I’ll always be
True, I’ll be true
If just to memories

So sleep, my child, sleep
Your mother has gone away
Sleep, my child, sleep
She won’t be back this way
Won’t be back this way
