Christmas lullaby for SATB Choir, optional soloists and keyboard (or harp). From Kenton Coe's Carols from the Appalachian Mountains. A beautiful and simple setting of the tune Restoration. Haunting and evocative of the rural and remote mountain communities that gave birth to many of these old hymns. Your choir will love this!
Hush, my babe, lie still in slumber, holy angels guard thy bed.
Heavenly blessings without number gently stealing o'er thy head.
Soft and easy in thy cradle; hard was where thy Savior lay,
when his birthplace was a stable, and his softest bed was hay.
Lo, he slumbers in the manger, where the heavy oxen fed,
Peace, my darling, there's no danger, there's no oxen by thy bed.
Mayst thou live to know and fear him, trust and love him all thy days,
Then go dwell forever near him, see his face and sing his praise.
