Auntie sang nightly
.
songs to sooth and quiet
.
sandman brings sweet dreams

sandman brings sweet dreams
.
day is done, gone the sun*
.
all thru the night **

===================================
* from “Taps”  lyrics by Horace Lorenzo Trim
.
Day is done, gone the sun
From the lakes, from the hills, from the skies
All is well, safely rest;
God is nigh.

** from “All Thru the Night”
written by written by Edward Jones
.

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 loved ones’ watch am keeping,
All through the night
