The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

A Child So Sweet
(Brazil - Repousa Tranquilo o Megio Jesus)

1. In manger lies a child so sweet: what joy and delight
A star so bright to all the world reveals a Son, the Light
In humble bed He lies asleep where cattle have fed
His mother awed in watchful prayer, so gently strokes His head

2. The shepherds leave their flocks and come to bring Him their love
While angels sing in joyous praise, hosannas from above
From far away the wise men three their precious gifts bring
The whole wide world before Him kneels: He is the little King!
