Christmas Lullaby


1. Savior and King, yet He came as a babe,
as a babe to His mother named Mary.
Gently she wrapped Him in swaddling clothes,
then, in a manger bed, softly laid Jesus.
Sleep, Baby Jesus.
2. Standing nearby, giving comfort and love,
loving Mary and Jesus was Joseph.
All through the night, while the Child calmly slept,
he protected the dear Baby Jesus.
Sleep, Baby Jesus.
[Chorus:] Angels sang joyously telling the shepherds that Jesus,
God’s Son, had been born on the earth.
We now sing joyously telling all people that Jesus,
God’s Son, has been born on the earth.
Sleep Baby, sleep Baby, sleep Baby Jesus.
