Time For Sleeping

Time For Sleeping

Dedicated to my French Huguenot & Bouton ancestors who sacrificed so much to escape religious persecution by coming to America. They gifted freedom to their descendents. This song is a peaceful reminder of the beautiful Avesnes countryside they left behind. —Natalie

Close your eyes my little one.
Dream, my love, ‘til morning comes.
Earth is still, the day is done,
Now it’s time for sleeping.
Earth is still, the day is done,
And now it’s time for sleeping.

Wind is humming through the leaves
Birds coo softly in the trees
Hear their twilight symphony.
Now it’s time for sleeping.
Hear their twilight symphony.
And now it’s time for sleeping.

Cello bridge

Heaven’s painted pink and blue
Shadows bid the light adieu
Stars are watching over you
Now it’s time for sleeping.
Stars are watching over you
And now it’s time for sleeping.

And now it’s time for sleeping.
