For Two-Part choir (men/women) or duet. Medium ranges. Combines an original lullaby text with There's A Song in the Air to a new tune. Wonderfully effective for a Christmas Eve service. One of those gentle, lovely pieces you'll do again and again!
Holy child, blessed child, go to sleep,
Dearest child, meek and mild, slumber deep.
Sleep now as the angels from on high
Worship you with their lullaby.
There's a song in the air, and a star in the sky!
The mother's deep prayer, the babe's low cry.
The feeling of joy o'er the wonderful birth,
The virgin's sweet boy is Lord of earth.
The star rains its fire while the beautiful sing,
The manger of Bethlehem cradles Christ the King.
