Representative Text

1. Sleep, little Baby, sleep, O sleep,
Mother dear sang.
Tenderly rest, Child, sleep in peace,
Her soft voice rang.
Sleep, heav’nly Child, tenderly sleep,
Lord God art Thou.
Heaven and earth in praises join,
Praise to Thee now.

2. Lowly in manger camest Thou,
Us to redeem.
Shepherds revered Thee, worshipped Thee,
Holiest scene.
Heavenly star shone on Thee bright,
Radiant Lord.
Peoples of earth are drawn to Thee,
Hence evermore.

3. Angels be silent, sleep, O Child,
Peace may here reign.
Bow before Him, ye nations all,
In glad refrain.
God sent His Son to set us free,
Peace to accord.
Let us then praise and honor Him,
Jesus our Lord.
