Baby Jesus Sleeps

Baby Jesus Sleeps.mp3

Verse 1:

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 (the cattle low)

so softly,

Even as the angels sing (they sing their

 praise) their praise to God (their praise to God)

We know the joy he brings,

He is all good things.

He is the Saviour, our precious baby King!

 

Verse 2:

In this cattle stall

Where kings and shepherds call

To bow their heads before a baby boy.

On the stable floor

Where all who kneel adore

This blessed gift of life and truth and joy. 

 

Even as the cattle low (the cattle low so softly)

so softly,

Even as the angels sing (they sing their

 praise to God, to God) their praise to God.

We know the joy he brings,

He is all good things.

He is the Saviour, our precious baby King!

 

Verse 3:

As I see the scene

In my imagining,

I wonder why a King so lowly born.

Then in faith anew

I know that God is true.

In every place

His brand new day shall dawn.

 

Final Chorus 3 parts:

Even as the cattle low (the cattle low)

so softly,

Even as the angels sing (they sing their

 praise) to God (to God),

We know the joy he brings,

He is all good things.

He is the Saviour, our precious baby King!
