Verse 1
Long day's over, time for bed.
Tired children, sleepy heads.
Gentle shepherd will watch His sheep.
Little children, go to sleep.

Verse 2
Still and quiet, tucked in tight,
Dear God, keep us safe tonight.
Bless us all with dreams so sweet.
Little children, go to sleep.

Oh, we thank You for the night
And for the pleasant morning light
For rest and food and loving care,
And all that makes the day so fair.

Help us to do the things we should,
To be to others kind and good;
In all we do, at work or play,
To grow more loving every day.

Verse 3 [singing resumes]
Warm and cozy, prayers all said.
Guardian angels around your bed.
Gentle cherubs, bless and keep
Little children, all asleep.
