CjPkppnjlrgus Baby, what do the Mossoms say Down in the garden walks f They nod and they bow in the twilight gtay; Tniy, can you hear them talk f They say : " O darling baby bright, Wn nro going to sleep ; good-mght ! good-night I For the lullaby breezes have come to sing IIow God takes care of everything." Sleep ! sleep ! Baby, what does the robin say ? Do you hear his evening song ? He sits and sings his snnset lay With a heart all blithe and strong. He sings : " Goc 1-night, my baby dear, Sleep soft, sleep welf, and do not fear; ï'ov somehow I know, as I sit and sing, ïhut God takes care of everything." Sleep! sleep! Baby, what does the cricket say ? Do you hear his measured voice ? He saya : " Ttm sun has pone away, And I've come out to rejoice ; For the cold dews fall upon tlie grass, And the tiieiiies whisper as they pass, Crinkt. rrirket, come out and'sing, How God takes care of everything.'" Sleep ! sleep I B tby, what are your mother's words, As you hestle upon her breast ? Bhe says : " Come hither, my sweetest of birds, For you must seek your nest. The flowers and the robins hare gone to sleep, The crickets and glo w-worms their watohes keep ; And yourmother will sit by your eradle and sing That God takes care of everything." Sleep ! sleep !
