    Sleep, baby, sleep

    Sleep, baby, sleep

    Mary and Joseph watch as you slumber

    Sleep, baby, sleep

    Rest your weary head

    On your tiny bed

    Angels guard you, shepherds surround you

    Rest your weary head

    The Wise Men travel from afar

    Bringing gifts and led by a star,

    Journey to the manger low,

    to find the child the whole world will know.

    Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

    Praises to the newborn King.

    So, sleep baby, sleep

    Sleep, new baby, sleep

    Little Lord Jesus, sleep as we pray

    And sing this lullaby.
