Lyrics

Do you sleep, Bethlehem?
Do you sleep through the night while the Saviour is born?
Do you sleep while the star with its tail so bright
sheds its rays over the manger as a guiding light?
Sleep, Bethlehem, sleep.

As you sleep, Bethlehem,
Do you dream of peace?
Do you dream of his birth?
Do you dream of the shepherds as they watch their sheep?
Do you dream of go,Od tidings that the angels speak?
Dream, Bethlehem, dream.

Go to sleep, baby Jesus, go to sleep, little Lamb,
And God rest you well.
You will be our salvation and the Son of Man.
You will free God's creation from the bonds of sin.
Sleep, Bethlehem; Dream, little Lamb; Sleep, Jesus, sleep.
