Lyrics by Harold Boulton

VERSE 1

G        C          A       D 
Sleep my child, and peace attend thee,

C   D7          G 
All through the night;

         C      A        D 
Guardian angels God will send thee,

C   D7          G 
All through the night;

C    G   C    G C     Dm     Am   E 
Soft the drowsy hours___ are creeping,

Am            Em Am      D7 
Hill and vale in slumber sleeping,

G       C      A     D 
God his loving vigil keeping,

C   D7          G 
All through the night. 

  
VERSE 2

G         C        A        D 
While the moon her watch is keeping,

C   D7          G 
All through the night;

          C     A        D 
While the weary world is sleeping,

C   D7          G 
All through the night;

C    G   C  G   C   Dm    Am   E 
O'er thy spirit gent---ly stealing,

Am         Em Am     D7 
Visions of delight revealing,

G          C        A    D 
Breathes a pure and holy feeling,

C   D7          G 
All through the night. 

  
VERSE 3

G       C      A       D 
You, my God, a Babe of wonder,

C   D7          G 
All through the night;

           C           A          D 
Dreams you dream can't break from thunder,

C   D7          G 
All through the night;

C   G      C      G  C  Dm     Am E 
Children's dreams cannot___ be broken,

Am          Em Am     D7 
Life is but a  lovely token,

G         C         A      D 
Christmas should be softly spoken,

C   D7          G 
All through the night.
