Song # 21401

sleep my little jesus



sleep, my little jesus,
on thy bed of hay,
while the shepherds homeward
journey on their way.
mother is thy shepherd
and will her vigil keep:
did the voices wake thee?
o sleep, my jesus, sleep!

refrain

softly sleep, sweetly sleep,
my jesus, sleep!

sleep, my little jesus,
while thou art my own!
ox and ass thy neighbors,
shalt thou have a throne?
will they call me bless├Ęd?
shall i stand and weep?
be it far, jehovah!
o sleep, my jesus, sleep!

refrain

sleep, my little jesus,
wonder-baby mine!
well the singing angels
greet thee as divine.
through my heart, as heaven
low the echoes sweep
of glory to jehovah!
o sleep, my jesus, sleep!

refrain
