From the recording Angels of Blessing
This "lullaby" came to me during a difficult period in my own life. I use and recommend it for concluding prayers, for calming and centering before rest or sleep, or before a journey. Children (and our inner child) naturally respond to the familiar melody. With William's arrangement, I imagine angels serenading us to sleep as they stand around the piano. Moshe Halfon, vocals; William Ashford, piano, Johannes Brahms, melody. Lyrics, arrangement ©Moshe Halfon, 2001.
