Hush, lay down your troubled mind
The day has vanished and left us behind
And the wind, whispering soft lullabies
Will soothe, so close your weary eyes

Let your arms enfold us
Through the dark of night
With your angels hold us
Till we see the light

Sleep, angels will watch over you
And soon beautiful dreams will come true
Can you feel spirits embracing your soul
So dream while secrets of darkness unfold

  1. Amen. And lovely. One more reminder that the touch of a gentle woman is needed by the world. Final Child, who rarely visits the land of “darned if she does/darned if she doesn’t” called about two hours into my dead sleep to say not to worry, she’s at the barn and all’s well and she’ll be home soon. *sigh.. where was this call all those times I waited for it and, unable to sleep if she were dying or being held against her will somewhere, called her at 1:30 only to hear, “For God’s sake, Mom, I’m 20, you know!”? So, I got up and thought about Lent, posted a comment about Lent, and checked the RSS feed to see that you aren’t sleeping, either. I was glad (for my sake!) to see that. I for one am going to take this lullaby with me, and let the secrets of darkness unfold while I dream, right after I finish the Rosary. Thank you.

  2. “[S]oon beautiful dreams will come true.” Yes, they will; and, most likely, in a way and scope that are beyond our wildest dreams. Let us dream those beautiful dreams, and press on.

  3. Thank you for popping in, everybody. Even the loveliest of lyrics or poetry become absolutely ethereal when set to beautiful music, don’t they. Singing really is praying twice, as St. Augustine said. But I do wish I had more “normal” sleep-patterns…

    A special hello and welcome to Eleanor; thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!

    Pressing on, Gene, pressing on…
