All Through The Night lyrics:

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 vale in slumber sleeping
I my loving vigil keeping
All through the night.

While the moon her watch is keeping
All through the night.
While the weary world is sleeping
All through the night.
O'er thy spirit gently stealing
Visions of delight revealing
Breathes a pure and holy feeling
All through the night.

Hark, a solemn bell is ringing
Clear through the night.
You, my love, are heav'nward winging,
Home through the night.
Earthly dust from off thee shaken
By good angels art though taken
Soul immortal shalt though waken
Home through the night.

Version 2
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 vale in slumber sleeping
Mother dear, her watch is keeping
All through the night.

God is here, thou'lt not be lonely
All through the night.
'Tis not I who guards thee only
All through the night.
Night's dark shades will soon be over
Still my watchful care shall hover
God with me his watch is keeping
All through the night.
