This traditional Welsh lullaby is written simply but beautifully. The notes fall easily under the fingers with repeating motifs.  It works very well as therapeutic music for use in hospices, hospitals, or other settings with its gentle and soothing sound.

This arrangement is written in the key of E flat and can be played on either a lever or pedal harp.  There are no lever or pedal changes. (2 pages)

This song is lovingly dedicated to Macey Elizabeth Paup.  Her family are wonderful friends of ours as we've helped each other through our daughters' challenges dealing with Aicardi Syndrome. At 14 years old, Macey peacefully passed away at home surrounded by her family. I wrote this lullaby arrangement for her during her final days.

Level: Early Intermediate








Here are the beautiful words of the song:



Sleep, my child, and peace attend thee
All through the night.
Guardian angels God will send thee
All through the night.
Soft the drowsy hours are creeping,
Hill and dale in slumber sleeping;
I, my loving vigil keeping
All through the night.

Love, fear not if sad thy dreaming
All through the night.
Though o’er cast, bright stars are gleaming
All through the night.
Joy will come to thee at morning,
Life with sunny hope adorning,
Though sad dreams may give dark warning
All through the night.

Hark! A solemn bell is ringing
Clear through the night.
Thou, my love, art heavenward winging
Home through the night.
Earthly dust from off thee shaken,
Soul immortal thou shalt waken,
With thy last dim journey taken,
Home through the night.
