"Honest Lullaby" was a 1979 album by Joan Baez. It would be her final album for CBS Records, and her last new studio album issued in the US until 1987. The title song was written for her son, Gabriel Harris. In her 1987 memoir, "And a Voice to Sing With", Baez speculated that she was likely dropped from her record label due to a political disagreement she'd had with the then president of CBS Records. "Let Your Love Flow" was originally a 1976 hit for the Bellamy Brothers.

Baez dedicated the album to the memory of journalist John L. Wasserman. (Wasserman, who had died the previous February, had written the liner notes to Baez' 1977 compilation, "The Best of Joan C. Baez".)

Cover photos were taken by famed photographer Yousuf Karsh.
