The Seal Lullaby
poem by Rudyard Kipling, music by Eric Whitacre,
and performed by The Eric Whitacre Singers

The Seal Lullaby by Eric Whitacre on Grooveshark

Oh! Hush thee, my baby, the night is behind us,
  And black are the waters that sparkled so green.
The moon, o’er the combers, looks downward to find us,
  At rest in the hollows that rustle between.

Where billow meets billow, then soft be thy pillow,
  Oh weary wee flipperling, curl at thy ease!
The storm shall not wake thee, nor shark overtake thee,
  Asleep in the arms of the slow swinging seas!

Dedicated to the brave teachers and small students:  
all innocent victims of  the tragedy at 
Sandy Hook Elementary School.
