I wrote the words to this song years ago, imagining putting my own child to bed. The melody is based on a Welsh hymn I heard as a child.

Lyrics

Sleep, Baby, Sleep
Words by Lisa Redfern
Music: Welsh hymn

You’ve had your bath, you’ve had your playtime
Sleep, baby, sleep
Bring your books, it’s nearing bedtime
Sleep, baby, sleep
Peter Rabbit, Piglet and Pooh
Babaar and The Little Prince too
They are wishing sweet dreams for you
Sleep, baby, sleep

Daddy sang his song for you
Sleep, baby, sleep
Now I’ll sing my own song too
Sleep, baby, sleep
How we love you, how we adore you
We would change the whole world for you
But for now the rest restores you
Sleep, baby, sleep

Pillows soft and blankets warm
Sleep, baby, sleep
We will keep you safe from harm
Sleep, baby, sleep
As you’re drifting off to dreamland
I will keep hold of your little hand
Sleep, baby, sleep
