My precious one

(Peer Astrom & Stephanie Bentley)

My precious one, my tiny one

Lay down your pretty head

My dearest one, my sleepy one

It's time to go to bed

My precious one, my darling one

Don't let your lashes weep

My cherished one, my weary one

It's time to go to sleep

Just bow your head

And give your cares to me

Just close your eyes

And fall into the sweetest dream

'Cause in my loving arms

You're safe as you will ever be

So hush my dear and sleep

And in your dreams

You'll ride on angels' wings

Dance with the stars

And touch the face of God

And if you should awake

My precious one, my tiny one

I'll kiss your little cheek

And underneath the smiling moon

I'll sing you back to sleep
