Go to Sleep Now

words and music by Jane Voss


It’s been a long day

And you gave it all your best

It’s plain to see you’ve come a long way now

To doubt you’ve earned the rest

You need so dearly

Go to sleep now, go to sleep now


Stars are rising

And the sun is long since gone

And still your mind keeps analyzing

While your thoughts run on and on

And none too clearly

Go to sleep now, go to sleep now


Let your worries drop like leaves into a stream

Let them glide away and leave you

To your own sweet peaceful dream

Go to sleep now, go to sleep now

Go to sleep now


The day is dying

And like the day, you’re all done in

You’ve gone and spread yourself too thin again

You’ve got to stop and catch your breath

But surely

Go to sleep now, go to sleep now


The night wind’s sighing

Tells all the earth it’s time to rest

And here at last, the time for flying

Like a bird back to the nest

Safe and securely

Go to sleep now, go to sleep now


Let sleep’s magic carpet carry you away

May it bear you through unharried

To the bright new land of Day

Go to sleep now, go to sleep now

Go to sleep now
