Sleep, my Little Dearest One

SLEEP, my little dearest one,
I will guard thy sleep,
Safely little nearest one,
I will hold thee deep,
In the dark unfathomed sea
Where sweet dreams are made for thee.
Rest my little baby dear,
I will watch thy rest,
Thou shalt feel the waters near
Only on my breast;
In the strong and tender tide,
Still my love shall be thy guide.
