    WORDS

THE TEXT

Hush, my dear, lie still and slumber;

Holy angels guard thy bed;

Heavenly blessings without number

Gently falling on thy head.

 

See the kindly shepherds round him,

Telling wonders from the sky!

When they sought Him, there they found Him, 

With his Virgin-Mother by.

 

See the lovely babe a-dressing;

Lovely infant, how He smiled!

When He wept, the mother's blessing

Soothed and hushed the holy child.

 

Mayst thou live to know and fear Him,

Trust and love Him all thy days;

Then go dwell forever near Him,

See His face, and sing His praise!

Isaac Watts
