A Lullaby for a grandson

Tender, tender, touch him now
Surrender, surrender sleepless brow
Sleep is a palace, love is a feast
Come weary darling I sing release
Tenderly drift, drift, drift away
Love is forever, life's but a play

Tender, tender, rock her now
Surrender, surrender sleepless brow
Time is so fleet, and love is strong
Come weary darling rest my song
Tenderly drift, drift, drift away
Love is forever, life's but a play

Tender, tender, O my heart yearns
Surrender, surrender the boatman churns
Carry him (her), Carry him away
Angels come watch him, watch here I pray
Tenderly drift, drift, drift away
Love is forever, dream where you lay.
