We have waited so long for you, Darling,
Our precious, beloved, newly born daughter.
We have given you the name of Hannah.
Do you like your given name, sweet Hannah?
Your great-grandma wears it with pride, Darling.
She is longing to meet her granddaughter.
It is time now for sleep for our daughter.
We will sing a sweet lullaby, Hannah,
As welcome to our world for our darling.
Darling daughter, Hannah, we love you so.
