I sang this song in a solo ensamble (by piano) when I was really young and I hum it all the time... but I don't know what its called and want to know all the words. HELP!!

Sleep oh my darling now sleep
hushed are the val and the sheep
__________________ doth lie

oh sleep (trailing notes up and down)
oh sleep

"Sleep oh my darling now sleep.
Mother her vigil doth keep.
Birds are asleep in their nest.
Lambkins and bees are at rest.
All now is silent and still.
Hushed are the vale and the hill.
Soft be thy slumber and deep,
Sleep oh my darling now sleep.
Sleep,
Oh sleep."

That?

I found another longer version:

Sleep, Oh my darling, now sleep.
Mother her vigil doth keep.
Birds are asleep in their nests;
Lamkins and bees are at rest.
All now is quiet and still
Hushed are the vale and the hill. (Nothing to sigh for-or weep.)
Soft be thy slumber and deep.
Sleep, oh my darling now sleep. 0 sleep, oh sleep.

Quiet now reigns in the house.
Tired are the cat and the mouse.
Turmoil of day now is o'er.
Hushed are the noise and the roar.
All now in slumber doth lie.
Bright are the stars in the sky.
Angels a guard o'er thee keep.
Sleep, oh my darling, now sleep.
Oh sleep, oh sleep.

The song was set to music by Mozart. Maybe this will help jog your memory: www . youtube . com/watch?v=n5FDTmhGSOo
