“All Through the Night” 
1. Sleep, my child, and peace attend thee,
All thought the night.
Guardian angels God will send thee,
All through the night.
Soft the drowsy hours are creeping,
Hill and vale in slumber steeping,
I, my loving vigil keeping,
All though the night.
While the moon her watch is keeping,
All though the night.
While the weary world is sleeping,
All though the night.
O’er thy spirit gently stealing,
Vision of delight revealing,
Breathes a pure and holy feeling,
All though the night.
