1. Lullaby, Little One.

Angels gather near.

“Come,” they say, “see the King in a manger here.”

They sing of You, Messiah,

Filling me with joy.

The Son of God has come to earth as such a tiny boy.

Do You know? Can You tell all that You will be?

King of Kings, but for now a child, like me.

2. Lullaby, Little One.

When You have grown,

You’ll be my Shepherd then, guiding me home.

I sing to You, Messiah.

You are my shining ray.

My love for You will never die but grow from day to day.

Now I know, more like You I can learn to be,

Remembering that You were once a child, like me.
