Hush! Oh, hush your sobbing, child of my breast; Midst cruel war our heroes know no rest. Cold and hunger, dear one, soon shall pass away; Help will come when night shall turn to day. Hearts of pity, love, far in the west, Pray for our safety, giving of their breast. Hush your sobbing, O my Child; have no fear; Help is coming soon to save us here: Hush! My arms are round you, child, and I know God in heaven sees our anguish here below, Thro' His mercy ships are speeding over the sea; Help is coming to you and me. Hush!
