Who Sat And Watch My Infant Head Lyrics. Main song words are Who sat and watched my infant head when sleeping in my cradle bed and tears of sweet affection shed? My Mother when pain and sickness made me cry.
Who Sat And Watch My Infant Head Lyrics
Who fed me from her gentle breast
And hush’d me in her arms to rest
And on my cheek sweet kisses prest?
When sleep forsook my open eye
Who was it sung sweet hushaby
And rock’d me that I should not cry?
Who sat and watched my infant head
When sleeping in my cradle bed
And tears of sweet affection shed?
When pain and sickness made me cry
Who gazed upon my heavy eye
And wept for fear that I should die?
Who dress’d my doll in clothes so gay
And taught me pretty how to play
And minded all I had to say?
Who taught my infant lips to pray
And love God’s holy book and day
And walk in Wisdom’s pleasant way?
And can I ever cease to be
Affectionate and kind to thee
Who was so very kind to me?
Ah no! the thought I cannot bear;
And if God please my life to spare
I hope I shall reward thy care
Who ran to help me when I fell
And would some pretty story tell
Or kiss the place to make it well?
When thou art feeble old and gray
My healthy arm shall be thy stay
And I will soothe thy pains away
And when I see thee hang thy head
‘Twill be my turn to watch thy bed
And tears of sweet affection shed
For could our Father in the skies
Look down with pleased or loving eyes
If ever I could dare despise
