Line 4&9:
(And I will sing a lullaby)

For all the pain to go away the

sleep. the repetition of the phrase and the use of soft vowel sounds show how desperate the writer was to make the baby sleep.

Line 5&10:
(Rock them, rock them, lullaby.)
Here the speaker is repeating that the sleep will help to seas the pains in life. That worries and troubles will be kept away from this child.

Line 6:

(Care is heavy, therefore sleep you,)
All your preoccupations are so heavy, meaning that troubles and worries weigh us down and make life difficult. The only way to reduce the weigh is to loose yourself into sleep.

The Beatles made a song based on this poem
Golden Slumbers
(by Thomas Dekker)
Golden slumbers kiss your eyes,
Smiles awake you when you rise ;
Sleep, pretty wantons, do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby,
Rock them, rock them, lullaby.
Care is heavy, therefore sleep you,
You are care, and care must keep you;
Sleep, pretty wantons, do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby,
Rock them, rock them, lullaby.

Line 3&8:
(Sleep, pretty wantons, do not cry,)
It uses the sleep as a way to calm pain. This ends up pretending to be the only way to cease the pain.
Line 7:

(you are care, and care must keep you;)
Personification; The only thing in the mind of the writer is this baby and through the poem he proves that he will give his life for him.
This is a lullaby, a soothing piece of music, designed to send a little baby off to sleep. It is about one person (mother or father) dealing with all the worries of another so they can be truly relaxed and serene.
Problems with debt could well be the key to understanding why he wrote this poem. If his own life was filled with stress then it stands to reason that he might want to protect his child from this stress.
