Good Night Fair Witches

Lay down, my dear children,

Won’t You come and take your rest

Lay Your weary head to rest upon your Mother’s breast

So I bid you goodnight, goodnight, goodnight

And I bid you goodnight

Goodnight fair witches
Lay down your head and rest
Lay down your weary head and be the mountain’s guest
The stars will guide you, your dreams will do the rest
So I bid you goodnight, goodnight, goodnight

And I bid you goodnight.
