Cradle Song (Brahms’ Lullaby)

Cradle Song (Brahms’ Lullaby)

Dedicated to both the German side of our Family, & all of our loved ones who immigrated & embraced the American Dream, & who combined their traditions with their new American culture. —Jordan, Amy & Natalie

Lullaby and good night
With roses bedight
With lilies o’er spread
Is baby’s wee bed

Lay thee down now and rest.
May thy slumber be blessed.
Lay thee down now and rest.
May thy slumber be blessed.

Lullaby and good night,
Thy Mother’s delight
Bright angels beside
My darling abide

Lay thee down now and rest.
May thy slumber be blessed.
Lay thee down now and rest.
May thy slumber be blessed.

(instrumental verse)

Oooooo

Lay thee down now and rest.
May thy slumber be blessed.
Lay thee down now and rest.
May thy slumber be blessed.
