Latin Lyrics:

Lux,
calida gravisque pura velut aurum
et canunt angeli molliter
modo natum.

English Lyrics:

Light,
warm and heavy as pure gold
and the angels sing softly
to the new-born baby.

Edward Esch

The evening hangs beneath the moon
A silver thread on darkened dune
With closing eyes and resting head
I know that sleep is coming soon

Upon my pillow, safe in bed
A thousand pictures fill my head
I cannot sleep my minds a flight
And yet my limbs seem made of lead

If there are noises in the night
A frighting shadow, flickering light
Then I surrender unto sleep

Where clouds of dreams give second sight

What dreams may come both dark and deep

Of flying wings and soaring leap

As I surrender unto sleep
As I surrender unto sleep
