GAELIC LULLABY

Hush the waves are rolling in,

White with foam, white with foam;

Father toils amid the din;

But baby sleeps at home.


Hush the winds roar hoarse and deep,—

On they come, on they come!

Brother seeks the wandering sheep;

But baby sleeps at home.


Hush! the rain sweeps o'er the knowes,

Where they roam, where they roam;

Sister goes to seek the cows;

But baby sleeps at home.
