    Sing parts separately, then combined

    Child: Mother*, tell me the story that I love to hear.

    Tell me of heaven and why I came here.

    Mother, tell how you love me, and gently speak,

    And then I’ll go to sleep.

    Mother: Child, I am here.

    Can you feel that heaven is near?

    Sleep, sleep; a lovewatch I’ll keep

    to protect you through the night.
