Joseph's Lullaby (Hoffman)


Joseph's Lullaby (Hoffman)

Music for Children, Submitted Music (1998-2006)

The Shepherds are gone, and the choir too.

The new star’s joined the sky.

Mary’s sleeping and dreaming of life with you

Now it’s just you and I.

So sleep dear baby Jesus

Savior of all mankind

Wise men still seek thee,

Humble men still find.

 

I was warned in a dream of King Herod’s pride

And so we now must go,

To Egypt where we can safely hide

And we can watch you grow.

So sleep, dear baby Jesus

Savior of all mankind

Wise men still seek thee,

Humble men still find.

 

I will teach thy hands, as a carpenter,

To shape and smooth the wood.

Loving touches will heal those who suffer

As only thy hands could.

So sleep, dear baby Jesus

Savior of all mankind.

Wise men still seek thee,

Humble men still find.
