Sleep child, sleep, and weep no more
Open your eyes and take my hand,
Take a breath and I’ll be sure
to guide you through to the other land.
Calm dear, calm, there’s no need for fear here
And there’s no need for tears.
Step across the threshold now
And grasp your eyes to see
happy smiles and happy cheers and
happy things in all delight.
You shall learn to see, my friend,
that this is only a temporary fright.
Soon dear, soon,
You’ll cease to feel the pain,
You’ll cease the need to feign,
And you’ll cease those tears in the rain,
As happiness will be yours again.
