lyrics

Hush, hush, time to be sleeping
Hush, hush, dreams come a-creeping
Dreams of peace and of freedom
So smile in your sleep, my baby

Once our valleys were ringing
With sounds of our children singing
But now silence reins till the evening
And houses stand empty and broken

Hush, hush, time to be sleeping
Hush, hush, dreams come a-creeping
Dreams of peace and of freedom
So smile in your sleep, my baby

We stood, with heads bowed in prayer
While soldiers laid our cottages bare
The flames filled the clear evening air
And many lay dead in the morning

Hush, hush, time to be sleeping
Hush, hush, dreams come a-creeping
Dreams of peace and of freedom
So smile in your sleep, my baby

Where was our fine fearsome mettle,
Our men once so valliant in battle?
They stand, cowed, huddled like cattle
And we're to be shipped o're the ocean

Hush, hush, time to be sleeping
Hush, hush, dreams come a-creeping
Dreams of peace and of freedom
So smile in your sleep, my baby

No use in pleading or praying
Gone, gone, all hope of staying
So hush, hush, the anchor's a-weighing
Don't cry in your sleep, my baby

Hush, hush, time to be sleeping
Hush, hush, dreams come a-creeping
Dreams of peace and of freedom
So smile in your sleep, my baby
