1. 'Tween ox and ass in humble shed,
Sleep, sleep in Thy lowly bed:
Countless Cherubim, shining Seraphim
Watching all above the mighty Lord of Love, sleep, sleep!

2. 'Mid lilies white and roses red,
Sleep, sleep in Thy lowly bed:
Countless Cherubim, shining Seraphim
Watching all above the mighty Lord of Love, sleep, sleep!

3. 'Mid gentle shepherds hither led,
Sleep, sleep in Thy lowly bed:
Countless Cherubim, shining Seraphim
Watching all above the mighty Lord of Love, sleep, sleep!
