by Mark Heard.

Little child, weary eyes wet from weeping
Still your cries
In your fright
Know this night is day in dark disguise
Though the darkness brings alarm
You're still resting in My arms
Do not weep--simply sleep
You'll escape from harm

Close your eyes little one
Time alone can bring the sun, teary eyes
Lullabyes help the time to run
There would be no shadow found
If the sun weren't coming 'round
Close your eyes
Starry skies meet dawn without a sound

Little child whom I love
Can you hear the morning dove
While you slept
Darkness crept away and left the sun
