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 blessèd? 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
