Children sleep, children sleep,
Close your eyes and do not weep
Have no sorrow, have no fears
Feel no pain and shed no tears

The door and veil open wide
To welcome you to the other side
Go, sweet loved ones, be at peace
Let the pain and anger cease

Children sleep, children sleep,
Close your eyes and do not weep
Have no sorrow, have no fears
Feel no pain and shed no tears

Mother Earth your soul embraces
And wipes the tears from your faces
Your pain is over, you may rest
You're in our prayers and by Goddess blessed

Children sleep, children sleep,
Close your eyes and do not weep
Have no sorrow, have no fears
Feel no pain and shed no tears

All of us the bitterness have tasted
To see young lives so cruelly wasted
To see those left behind distraught
At what the soulless ones have wrought

Children sleep, children sleep,
Close your eyes and do not weep
Have no sorrow, have no fears
Feel no pain and shed no tears

This was a cruel and unfair deed
And for the bloodshed there was no need
Returned too early to the ground
Goddess, keep them safe and sound

Children sleep, children sleep,
Close your eyes and do not weep
Have no sorrow, have no fears
Feel no pain and shed no tears.
