The Lord bless thee and keep thee
The Lord make His face to shine upon thee
And be gracious unto thee
The Lord lift up His countenance upon thee
And give thee peace

Although not strictly intended as a lullaby, my mother used this song to sing us to sleep and I remember finding it very comforting.

There are many benedictions, but this is the one we most commonly sing in this part of the world at Christenings.

The words appear in Numbers 6, 22-26 as a blessing given by God to Moses for Aaron and his priests to use blessing the people.
