1. Sleep, little Jesus, Lord of the earth.
Angels are telling the news of thy birth.
Shepherds will come to thee, bringing thee love.
Bright shines the star in heaven above.
2. “Sleep, little Jesus,” softly we sing.
Earth long has waited her Savior and King.
Heavenly hosts sing, “Alleluia,
Peace to all men, Alleluia!”
