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,
While yet so gentle, undefiled,
With blessings on thy head.


Before thy heart had learned
In waywardness to stray;
Before thy feet had ever turn’d
The dark and downward way;


Ere sin had seared the breast,
Or sorrow woke the tear;
Rise to thy throne of changeless rest,
In yon celestial sphere!


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


Shall love, with weak embrace,
Thy upward wing detain?
No! gentle angel seek thy place
Amid the cherub train.
