Lullaby, Little One


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.
