  1. 1. Who is the child in the swaddling clothes,
    Lying asleep in the manger?
    Mary and Joseph watch nearby.
    Who is this little stranger?
  2. 2. Hush now, the child is the Son of God.
    Jesus is quietly sleeping.
    Shepherds have come to worship him;
    Angels their watch are keeping.
