Description

Let Them Sleep is about trying to protect the innocent from some of the harsher realities of life, if only for another night. 

​​

This piece is fairly simple to learn, but it’s immensely powerful and moving in performance. If you are familiar with Arvo Pärt’s music, you’ll recognize the usage of his Tintinnabuli technique.

SCROLLING SCORE

SATB
SSAA
 

Let them sleep, let them rest.

Just wait to tell them what comes next.

Let them dream tearless dreams.

The morning comes too soon.

 

What e’er comes, what e’er’s reaped,

Please let them have one last calm sleep.

Guard I’ll try, shield I might,

The world will weigh them too.

 

Let them sleep, let hearts rest.

Just wait to tell them what comes next.

Let them dream, safe and sound.

Guard all they know from life’s dark hound!

 

Just breathe, just sleep, my loves!

Let them sleep. Let them sleep.
