~ My Little One ~
Go to sleep my little one
Rest your weary eyes
Dream those beautiful dreams tonight
Awaken with the sunrise.
Don't fight sleep my little one
The sandman has sprinkled his dust on you
Drift on off to wonderland
God's angels will be with you.
I'll stay with you throughout the night
I'll chase all those monsters away
No need to be afraid my little one
I will protect you every day.
I'll hold you in my arms each night
And watch as you drift off to sleep
I'll lay my head down next to you
And kiss your nose, your mouth, your cheek.
I'll say a prayer as we lay together
Thanking God for moments like this
How precious you are my little one
What joy I know and sheer bliss.
So snuggle up my little one
We'll hold each other throughout the night
And when we open our eyes again
We'll see the morning light.
