Hymn/Song Information

Go to thy rest fair child Go to thy dreamless bed




Go to thy rest, fair child!
Go to thy dreamless bed,
Gentle, and meek and mild,
With blessings on thy head:


Fresh roses in thy hand,
Buds on thy pillow laid,
Haste from this blighting land,
Where flowers so quickly fade.


Before thy heart could learn
In waywardness to stray;
Before thy feet could turn
The dark and downward way;


Ere sin could wound thy breast,
Or sorrow wake the tear;
Rise to thy home of rest,
In yon celestial sphere!


Because thy smile was fair,
Thy lip and eye so bright,
Because thy cradle-care
Was such a fond delight;


Shall love, with weak embrace,
Thy heavenward flight detain?
No, angel! seek thy place
Amid yon cherub train.
