[Through composed]
Slumber, my darling,
God is watching over you,
Sleep on, my loved one,
May your happy dreams come true.

Life's but a pathway
to the golden world beyond,
Slumber my darling,
God is watching over you.

Stars now are shining,
not a single cloud appears,
May thy life's journey,
be as free from all its fears.

Angels surround thee,
chanting hymns of heav'nly praise,
Slumber, my darling,
He will wipe away your tears.
Goodnight my dear, Goodnight my dear.
