Tonight I sing this song for you
Before you go to sleep.
Rest gently in the arms of God.
There is no need to weep.
For I will keep you safe from harm
Whenever you’re awake.
Remember always I love you.
You’re not a big mistake.
I’ll sit with you and rock a while
And hold you in my arms.
I’ll read to you a storybook
And watch for your sweet charms.
Together we will face what comes,
Whether good or bad.
Remember I am by your side
Whenever you feel sad.
So sleep tonight my little one.
Feel safe within your bed.
Hold closely in your heart, dear child,
The stories that I’ve read.
Wake up tomorrow with new hope.
Believe in what I say:
Your heart and soul is in God’s hands.
He’ll take your pain away.
