English

He comes with the wind
He goes on the waves
He hears my prayer
When I call Him in the darkest moment of the night

Chorus:
Softly, softly, softly
I sleep softly, my Christ
Softly, softly, softly
I sleep softly in Your heart

Naked He stands at the dawn
In the new-born child
He is there at the end
As the soul parts from the body

(Chorus)

There is no one so full of mercy and love
There is no way to understand Your goodness
You are my teacher and guide
I sleep softly in Your heart

(Chorus 3x)
