My choice for today’s song and lyrics is:

“The Songs Of Night” (a mother’s lullaby to her baby)

This one of the most soothing and hauntingly beautiful lullabies ever sung. Group: Secret Garden. Album: “Earthsongs”. Vocalist: Fionnuala Gill.

“Lay down your head and I’ll sing you a lullaby

Back to the years of loo-li lai-lay

And I’ll sing you to sleep and I’ll sing you tomorrow

Bless you with love for the road that you go

May you sail far to the far fields of fortune

With diamonds and pearls at your head and your feet

And may you need never to banish misfortune

May you find kindness in all that you meet

May there always be angels to watch over you

To guide you each step of the way

To guard you and keep you safe from all harm Loo-li, loo-li, lai-lay

May you bring love and may you bring happiness

Be loved in return to the end of your days

Now fall off to sleep, I’m not meaning to keep you

I’ll just sit for a while and sing loo-li, lai-lay

May there always be angels to watch over you

To guide you each step of the way

To guard you and keep you safe from all harm

Loo-li, loo-li, lai-lay, loo-li, loo-li, lai-lay…”

    Oh, Amira! You found another one of my absolute favorites!! Great choice!! This song is so loving and so haunting at the same time! “May there always be angels to watch over you…..”. So beautiful! Thank you for sharing all three days of great music! ❤


    1. Wow! dear Anita!!!! So many synchronicities today!… So many things happened since last night and today which are bringing my attention to “Angels” and your comment just sent a clear “click” to pay attention… I woke up today and started writing a poem called”On the wings of Angels” Then I turned on the TV and watched a program on angels!!!! Wow!
      I am so glad you enjoyed it! It is really “haunting” as you said, I feel the same way when I listen to it.
      Sending light and much love your way, Amira :3
