Angels Watching

Hush little baby it's time to sleep
Angels watching over you don't you peep

Listen little dreamer hear this song
Angels watching over you so nothing's wrong

Sleep little baby you had your play
Angels watching over you it's time to pray

Now it's time to sleep it's all right
Angels watching over you to keep you tight

Soft is your bed now rest your head
Angels watching over you are by your bed

Now close your eyes and go to sleep
Angels watching over you your soul to keep

Sleep little baby you're about to gleam
Angels watching over you to safely dream

Edward J Ebbs - 10/23/11

Sonnet (little song - 14 lines)
Meant to be sung as a Lullaby to a child...

    Have you ever listened to the song "Hush Little Baby," and mocking bird. It is so soft and sweet just like yours is. Jim Horn

    I almost used a different title (Angels Watching Over You), but it was natural so say Hush Little Baby because I was babysitting my baby grand child and started to sing to her because she was crying, the melody came but I had to make up the words...thank you :)

    And it should be sung to a child as a lullaby. It is perfectly lovely. Congratulations. Love, Joyce
