Sleep holy Child for Thou art safe in Heaven's keeping
Angels hover near and they are here to guard Thy sleeping
Shadows of the night will in the morning light be gone
Sleep holy Child, So meek and mild Sleep on.
At Thy crib we find Faith and hope have shined
Beaming, their light is beaming,
Gleaming to all man-kind.
Sleep holy Child, tonight with Thee our hopes all rest,
Matchless is Thy worth, For in Thy birth, The earth is blest.
Sleep holy Child, Thy coming brings a brighter dawn,
Lord of life and love, From heav'n above our fears are gone
O holy Child, So meek and mild sleep on.
