Description

A beautifully moving lullabye for the Christ Child, very tender. Text by William Blake.  SATB plus piano or organ.

Sweet dreams, form a shade
O'er my lovely infant's head!
Sweet dreams of pleasant streams
By happy, silent moony beams!

Sweet Sleep, with soft down,
Weave thy brows an infant crown!
Sweet Sleep, angel mild,
Hover o'er my happy child!

Smiles on thee, on me, on all,
Who became an infant small;
Infant smiles are His own smiles,
Heav’nly face that smiles on thee!
