Sleep, Little Jesus

    Sleep, little Jesus, Lord of the earth.

    Angels are telling the news of Thy birth.

    Shepherds will come soon bringing Thee love.

    Bright shines a new star in heaven above.

    Sleep, little Jesus, softly we sing.

    Earth long has waited her Savior and King.

    Heavenly hosts sing, “Al-le-lu-ia,

    Peace to all men, Al-le-lu-ia!”

    Music, Sleep, Little Jesus
