Upon the world night falls
and darkness covers the face of the earth
as shadows descend
down on the sleeping
who's faith falls on the safety and comfort
of their dreams
sleep children of the sun
sleep under the covers for my offspring
shall visit you in the night
pray to your God
that the evermore shall find you with your
eyes closed to the dark
sleep sleep sleep
for the night shall come to claim
you and the breath you breath
shall be taken from your bodies
lest your eyes be closed
and your holy water be at your bedside
and your bibles in your closet
sleep children of the sun sleep.
