Lay down my dear brother
Lay down and take your rest
Won’t you lay your head
Upon your Savior’s breast
I love you all
But Jesus loves you the best
And we bid you goodnight, goodnight, goodnight

I would never ride, well, I would never ride (goodnight, goodnight)
But His rod and His staff, they comfort me (goodnight, goodnight)
Tell “A” for the ark, that wonderful boat (goodnight, goodnight)
Tell “B” for the beast at the ending of the wood (goodnight, goodnight)
You know it ate all the children when they wouldn’t be good,
Walking in Jerusalem just like John (goodnight, goodnight)
I go walking in the valley of the shadow of death,
And we bid you goodnight, goodnight, goodnight.
