The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

Son Sleep

Figlio Dormi - Giovanni Girolamo Kapsburger

Translator Unknown

Son sleep, sleep son
Close you eyes dear son
Motherís little curly boy
Sweet flame of my heart
My tiny little baby
Go to sleep, go to sleep son
lullaby, lullaby
My loving treasure
lullaby lullaby
Sweet and dainty curly haired one
Dainty and beautiful charming one.
Behold sleep, coming upon him
Spread your wings over my son
Sweet sleep for you we wait
You embrace him, you entice him
My tiny little baby
Go to sleep, go to sleep son
Sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep
Woo him o my song
Sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep
My sweetest refreshment
My richest treasure.
