Sweet Little Baby

    “Sweet Little Baby,” Friend, Dec. 2001, 10

    Sweet Little Baby

    Sweet little Baby

    Resting in the hay,

    Do You know why shepherds come

    To worship You today?

    Sweet little Baby,

    While Mary hummed to Thee,

    Angels sang out “Gloria!”

    O’er flock and field and tree.

    Sweet little Baby

    Peaceful in the night,

    Shepherds ran here breathless

    To see this wondrous sight.

    Sweet little Baby

    Wrapped up snug and tight,

    You set them free from fear and death

    By being born tonight.

    Sweet little Baby

    Smiling at these men,

    In time, You’ll be their Shepherd

    To guide them home again.
