1 Close in the arms of His mother,
Nestled the Christ Child asleep;
Angels watched tenderly o’er Him,
Guarding Him slumber so deep.
Close in the arms of His mother,
Tended by purest of love,
Lay the Redeemer of Nations,
Sent by the Father above.

Refrain:
Close in the arms of our Saviour,
Sheltered from danger and fear,
Gladly we’ll sing of His mercy,
Songs that shall strengthen and cheer.

2 Close in the arms of His mother,
Rested the Christ Child so fair;
Come to bring blessings to others,
Come to bring freedom from care.
Close in the arms of His mother,
Sheltered by passionate love,
Jesus, the Infant, lay sleeping,
Gentle and mild as a dove. [Refrain]

3 Close in the arms of the Saviour,
Rest weary pilgrims of earth,
After life’s struggles have left them,
Shorn of their trappings of mirth.
Close in the arms of the Saviour,
Soothed by His presence of love,
Bravely we’ll meet every trial,
Sent by our Father above. [Refrain]
