Description

Two-part treble choir and organ. A sweet lullaby with a moderately difficult organ accompaniment.

Sleep, holy babe, upon thy mother's breast; great Lord of earth and sea and sky, how sweet it is to see thee lie in such a place of rest.
Sleep, holy babe, thine angels watch around; all bended low with folded wings, before the incarnate King of Kings in reverent awe profound.
Sleep, holy babe, while I with Mary gaze in joy upon that face a while, upon the loving infant smile which there divinely plays.
Sleep, holy babe, ah, take thy brief repose; too quickly will thy slumber break, and thou to lengthened pains awake, that death alone shall close.
