Wake up my child, my wee bundle of joy
Wake up my heart, my breath, my boy.
Wake up now for the world is calling
Wake up now as my hopes are falling.
Wake up now and cry out aloud
Wake up, my baby, make me a mum proud.
Wake up this instant as time is slipping by
Wake up as my despair is now making me cry.
Alas, the time to wake up has now gone
I lost you, my firstborn, my son.
Sleep well now in the arms of angels
You are free of all of life’s travails.
