Hush Now

Hush now sweet child.

Close your eyes,

It will help you escape their hurtful lies.

Sleep now sweet child.

There you can get away,

And dream of a better day.

Rest well sweet child

Night licks its lips to the setting sun.

Do not awake even to the sound of his gun.

Slumber sweet child

When you arise there will be no fear.

All will be well here.
