Text Information:

The tune (“pure knowledge of God”), named for the son of the composer, was created to be a lullaby. The infant stopped breathing at one day old but was revived by the prompt action of nurses. The thankful mother wrote the English version of the Aaronic blessing (Numbers 6:24–26).
