All Verses


1. Oh, hush thee, my baby; a story I’ll tell,How little Lord Jesus on earth came to dwell;How in a far country, ’way over the sea,Was born a wee baby, my dear one, like thee.

Lullaby, baby, lullaby, dear.Sleep, little baby; have nothing to fear.Lullaby, baby, lullaby, dear.Jesus will care for his little one here.

2. The story was told by the angels so bright,As round them was shining a heavenly light.The stars shone out brightly, but one led the wayAnd stood o’er the place where the dear baby lay.

Lullaby, baby, lullaby, dear.Sleep, little baby; have nothing to fear.Lullaby, baby, lullaby, dear.Jesus will care for his little one here.

3. The shepherds here found him, as angels had said,The poor little stranger, no crib for a bed.Down low in a manger so quiet he lay.This little child Jesus, asleep on the hay.

Lullaby, baby, lullaby, dear.Sleep, little baby; have nothing to fear.Lullaby, baby, lullaby, dear.Jesus will care for his little one here.
