Let my arms be the resting place
For you head, soft and warm
For your light, lifting grace
Let my arms lose their weight
The loudness of the many days be lost
The tiredness at end turn to peaceful rest
The days behind turn to the days ahead

Loolay lullaby
Loolay lullaby
Loolay lullaby

Let my voice be the lullaby
For your gentle, sweet life
This is what my voice seeks:
The wish that is you

The stiffness of the fright’ning world will bend
The suppleness of bright’ning night will soothe and mend
And all the dreams I’ve spun to you will lend

Loolay lullaby
Loolay lullaby
Loolay lullaby

Liner Notes

Song Notes: This song, for all its simplicity, has gone through many subtle changes since I first sang it to Willie, my second son, in 1984. I've always liked the lack of any particular time signiture in the middle section. When I play it live, only the chorus has a straight 4/4 feel.

William Francis Mueller was born on December 1, 1984. This song has a strong Christmas carol feel to it, on purpose. I, too, was a winter baby, born December 3, 1955, one thing among many that we share.

I hope this lullaby is a satisfying final track. Especially following "Final Words." Life, indeed, goes on...
