Sleep Bear Me Away

Our radiant Sol is sinking fast
Her day is nearly done
The shadows all around are cast
The long night has begun

Oh come, starry sky
Come and shine on from high
Sleep bear me away on midnight wings
For I can wake no more
Sleep bear me away on midnight wings
For I can wake no more

The Moon is rising in the sky,
His glow a pale white
And though I hate to I must goodbye
For I must sleep tonight

Oh come, starry sky
Come and shine on from high
Sleep bear me away on midnight wings
For I can wake no more
Sleep bear me away on midnight wings
For I can wake no more

Oh come, starry sky
Come and shine on from high
Sleep bear me away on midnight wings
For I can wake no more
Sleep bear me away on midnight wings
For I can wake no more


To the tune of the 1860 hymn “Angel Band” by Jefferson Hascall and melody by William Bradbury.
