Lyrics sample

Baby Jesus sleeps, while mother Mary keeps

Her blessed vigil by His manger bed.

As a star shines bright into the deepest night,

Our baby Jesus rests His sleepy head.

Even as the cattle low, so softly.

Even as the angels sing their praise to God

We know the joy He brings, He is all good things.

He is the Saviour! Our precious baby King
