Go to sleep, sweet child
Push aside your cares
Calm your beating heart
Ease your furrowed brow

O God please stay here
The night is windy and dark
God, sit by my side
God, stay through the night
Bring her please
Please bring her back

I can't but shut my eyes
Can't but quicken my pulse
Sweat beads on my neck
Tears well in my eyes
Bring her please
Please bring her back

She began my heart a-beating
She began my mind a-lovin'
She starts my hands a-feelin'
She's as much of me as I am
Bring her back
O please bring her back

    General Commentdo you think the singer is speaking to G-d, asking Him to sit with him/stay through the night/etc.? or that he is using His name for emphasis, but still speaking to the girl?

    General CommentBoy inconsolable even by the presence of God, despairingly praying for what He is unlikely to re-deliver.

    General CommentThis song seems to present the birth of a child, perhaps within an incubation tank or simply sleeping. It seems that the father is so frightened that the child will not awaken from its sleep and simply wishes to his God that the child will awaken. When he speaks of how the child sparked his love, he is saying that the child is the first time that he has known unconditional love. The child sparked a paternal instinct within him that he had never before know.
