Five little angels stood around my bed
looking at me and shaking their heads
Four little angels said this isn’t right
why are you still awake in the night
Three little angels looked into my sleepy eyes
humming the sweetest lullabies
Two little angels began replenishing my soul
sprinkling compassion from a golden bowl
One little angels said sleep now, you are safe
holding me softly in a gentle embrace.
