Hush little baby please don't cry,

We need to be quiet tonight.

Can you hear him screaming?

His footsteps thud.

Don't make a sound, he's looking for blood.

I can't hold you much longer,

Slowly I'm growing weak.

Baby not even the littlest sigh,

Oh lord you're too young to die.

Your mouth too miniature for help,

Your hands without strength to push harm far.

No noise to put murder in way,

It's not your time, not today.

Oh god, listen to me,

I'm on my knees in prayer.

This man wants the baby,

God help me he's growing near.

My baby is screaming, lord he's here.

Husha, Husha we all fall down.
