about

music by Edmund Rubbra (1901-1986)

lyrics

Dormi, Jesu! Mater ridet
(Sleep sweet babe! My cares beguiling:
)
Quae tam dulcem somnum videt,
(Mother sits beside thee smiling;)
Dormi, Jesu! Blandule!
(Sleep, my darling, tenderly!
 )

Si non dormis, Mater plorat,

(If thou sleep not, mother mourneth,)
Inter fila cantans orat,
(Singing as her wheel she turneth:) 

Blande, veni, somnule.
(Come, soft slumber, balmily!)

-Samuel Taylor Coleridge
