Hush, Little Baby

Lyrics

1. Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,
Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird.

2. And if that mockingbird don’t sing,
Mama’s gonna buy you a diamond ring

3. And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama’s gonna buy you a looking glass.

4. And if that looking glass is broke,
Mama’s gonna buy you a billy goat.

5. And if that billy goat won’t pull,
Mama’s gonna buy you a cart and a bull.

6. And if that cart and bull turn over,
Mama’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover.

7. And if that dog named Rover won’t bark,
Mama’s gonna buy you a horse and a cart.

8. And if that horse and cart fall down,
you’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town.

Rock-a-bye Baby

Lyrics

Rock-a-bye baby
On the treetop
When the wind blows
The cradle will rock,
When the bough breaks
The cradle will fall
And down will come baby
Cradle and all.

Brahms’ Lullaby (Cradle Song)

Lyrics

Lullaby and good night,
With roses bedight,
With lilies o’er spread
Is baby’s wee bed.
Lay thee down now and rest,
May thy slumber be blessed.
Lay thee down now and rest,
May thy slumber be blessed.

Lullaby and good night,
Thy mother’s delight,
Bright angels beside
My darling abide.
They will guard thee at rest,
Thou shalt wake on my breast.
They will guard thee at rest,
Thou shalt wake on my breast.

Frère Jacques

Lyrics

Frère Jacques, frère Jacques,
Dormez-vous? Dormez-vous?
Sonnez les matines! Sonnez les matines!
Ding, dang, dong. Ding, dang, dong.

English Lyrics

Are you sleeping, are you sleeping,
Brother John? Brother John?
Morning bells are ringing! Morning bells are ringing!
Ding, dang, dong. Ding, dang, dong.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Lyrics

1. Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

2. When the blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

3. Then the traveler in the dark,
Thanks you for your tiny spark,
He could not see which way to go,
If you did not twinkle so.

4. In the dark blue sky you keep,
And often through my curtains peep,
For you never shut your eye,
‘Till the sun is in the sky.

5. As your bright and tiny spark,
Lights the traveller in the dark.
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

6. Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

7. Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
How I wonder what you are.

Mozart’s Lullaby (Sleep, Little One)

Lyrics

Sleep, little one, go to sleep
So peaceful the birds and the sheep
Quiet the meadow and trees
Even the buzz of the bees
The silvery moonbeams so bright
Down through the window give light
O’er you the moonbeams will creep
Sleep, little one, go to sleep.

Good night, good night.

Too-Ra-Loo-Ra-Loo-Ral (That’s an Irish Lullaby)

Lyrics

1. Over in Killarney, many years ago
My Mother sang a song to me
in tones so sweet and low,
Just a simple little ditty,
in her good ould Irish way,
And I’d give the world
if she could sing That song to me this day.

Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,
Too-ra-loo-ra-li,
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,
Hush now don’t you cry!
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,
Too-ra-loo-ra-li,
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,
That’s an Irish lullaby.

2. Oft in dreams I wander
To that cot again,
I feel her arms a-huggin’ me
As when she held me then.
And I hear her voice a-hummin’
To me as in days of yore,
When she used to rock me fast asleep
Outside the cabin door.

Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,
Too-ra-loo-ra-li,
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,
Hush now don’t you cry!
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,
Too-ra-loo-ra-li,
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,
That’s an Irish lullaby.

All the Pretty Little Horses (Hush-a-bye)

Lyrics

1. Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry
Go to sleep, my little baby
When you wake, you shall have
All the pretty little horses

Blacks and bays, dapples and grays
Coach and six a little horses
Hush you bye, Don’t you cry
Go to sleep, little baby
When you wake, you shall have
All the pretty little horses

2. Way down yonder, in the meadow
poor little baby, crying mama.
Birds and the butterflies, flutter ’round his eyes,
little baby crying mama.

Blacks and bays, dapples and grays
Coach and six a little horses
Hush you bye, Don’t you cry
Go to sleep, little baby
When you wake, you shall have
All the pretty little horses

Golden Slumbers

Lyrics

1. Golden slumbers kiss your eyes,
Smiles awake you when you rise;
Sleep, pretty baby, do not cry,
I will sing a lullaby.

While over you a watch I’ll keep
Sleep pretty darling, do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby.

Night Prayers for Kids

Bedtime prayers are a way for kids to learn self-reflection, whether it’s to help them better understand the importance of adapting as they get older or always keeping a positive outlook from an event that happened in the day. Improvising every night can be challenging for children if they’ve yet to learn about bedtime prayers or if their vocabulary has yet to grow.

For any parent that wants to help their kids get an understanding of self-reflection, we offer this collection of bedtime prayers so they can look back from their day before they sleep and having hope for their future.

Hope for the Future

  • Beautiful things will happen in the future
    Whether it’s something big or small
    There is no real way to look into what will happen
    Even if it’s something as close as the next day
    But none of it all should really be a worry
    Because you are part of the future as time goes on
    Whatever you do will be part of tomorrow
    Especially if you want the sky to be blue

 

Warmth in Bed

  • Do not worry about the cold day, child
    You are now in bed, where all is warm
    After being in the outside world with me
    We are finally at the comfort of your dorm
    As you get older, you will get more comfortable with the outdoors
    Especially when you grow up over the years
    For now, you just need to rest in your bed
    Without facing any kind of fears

 

Thank You for Everything

  • Thank you, God, for giving me a caring family
    For giving me a home to sleep in
    For helping me as I learn more about life
    And for always giving us hope when things aren’t right
    As long as you are with me and my family
    I will always give thanks to you
    For all the good things you’ve done for us
    And for never abandoning us at any low point.

 

Never Give Up

  • Sometimes, it’s fine to not get what you want
    It may feel discouraging to hear
    But that doesn’t mean there’s no second chance
    Whatever you want to win from the challenge you were in
    You can always get if you keep your head up

 

The Night Sky

  • All the stars keep the night sky from going dark
    They’re almost like the people in the world
    Both of them populate the home they live in
    And they each have something to say themselves
    You, too, are almost like a star in the sky
    As you are part of a big world along with everyone else.

 

The Excitement for Tomorrow

  • Tomorrow is a new day, where you can have fun once again
    Tomorrow is a new day, where everyone can spend time with you
    Tomorrow is a new day, where new things to do are bound to happen
    But for now, it’s time to rest in bed and save your energy
    As tomorrow will be here in the morning.
