I See the Moon

The Lunar New Year is a big celebration in my city. So with the new year just over a week away, we’re featuring a fitting lullaby love song for the little ones. I generally only sing lullabies at babytimes, but if your toddlertimes are mellower than mine, you might want to sing it with them too.

This song was written by Meredith Willson in the 1950s. Sometimes you’ll hear “God Bless the Moon” sung to the same tune, but this version is quite secular.


I See the Moon
C                    G7

I see the moon, the moon sees me
                               C

Down through the leaves of the old oak tree
                            F

Please, let the light that shines on me
G7                  C

Shine on the one I love

C                   G7

Over the mountain, over the sea
                        C

Back where my heart is longing to be
                            F

Please, let the light that shines on me
G7                  C

Shine on the one I love
