Words: George T. Rider
1. Sleep, my infant Saviour, on Thy lowly bed,
Mystic Star in splendour, shine above Thy head.
2. Sleep, while quiring angels, from the midnight sky,
Come with choral greeting, chant Thy lullaby.
3. Sleep while faithful wise men ‘round Thy manger meet,
Laying precious treasure at Thy kingly feet.
4. While Thy Maiden Mother, Rose and Lily, one,
Bends in adoration, o’er Thy cradle-throne.
5. Slumber, Holy Child, while men and angels sing,
Hail, Thou Son of Mary, Prophet, Priest and King.
Sheet Music from Charles L. Hutchins, Carols Old and Carols New (Boston: Parish Choir, 1916)
