VERSE 01: And smooth your golden hair/Papa too bends o’er you,/So baby do not weep,/But close your tired eye my, darling, close them fast in sleep,/In the morning when you waken,/Grass will shine with dew,/You will hear the churchbells ringing/Ringing love for you
CHORUS: When the little birds are singing, and you hear the church bells ringing,/Ringing out my darling one for you,(Birds are singing, church bells ringing,/Ringing out my darling one for you,)/O’er the hills the sun is climbing, on your golden locks is shining,/Open then your bonny eyes of blue.(Sun is climbing, locks is shining,/Open of blue)
VERSE 02: I will pray the Father,/Him who reigns above,/To hover always near you,/To guard you with his love/Sent to us from Heaven,/A blessing you have been,/And may your feet ne’er wander, from the path that leads to Him./And to God our Heav’nly Father,/Fervent thanks I’ll give,/For our darling baby treasure,/In whose smile I live.
