1. Rockabye Jesus sweet, close will I hold Thee,
As Mary's loving arms then did enfold Thee.
Rockabye Jesus, my soul's fairest treasure,
Rockabye Jesus, my love knows no measure.
Rockabye Jesus, my soul's fairest treasure,
Rockabye Jesus, my love knows no measure.

2. See how the world lies in sorrow and sadness;
Give us Thy blessing, O bring Heaven's gladness!
Rockabye Jesus, my soul's fairest treasure,
Rockabye Jesus, my love knows no measure.
Rockabye Jesus, my soul's fairest treasure,
Rockabye Jesus, my love knows no measure.
