lyrics

Be still, child.
Be still. Be still.
(X2)

Stay warm, child.
Stay warm. Stay warm.
(X2)

Be sweet, child.
Be sweet. Be sweet.
(X2)

In the air outside,
There's an awful chill.
Last week fifty died.
How many others will?

Stay warm, child.

Though the world may unravel,
Your blanket's woven tight.
Though violence rages on,
You are safe in your bed tonight.

Be still, child.

On the streets outside,
There's an awful hate.
So many children killed.
How long will justice take?

Be sweet, child.

Though those who govern may not be kind,
Let kindness govern you.
Though men may put you down,
To your own self be true.

But for now, you are young. You are warm and sweet and asleep. And for me, won't you stay that way?

Be still, child.
