Hush, little baby, peace little boy
slumbering in the hay;
dream while we carol tidings of joy,
Jesus of Christmas day.

1 Angels will tell news of good cheer,
glory will light the sky;
shepherds will kneel wondering here,
worshipping God most high.
Hush, little baby...

2 Joseph will guard, Mary will smile,
holding in sweet embrace
heaven's true Lord, here for a while,
Jesus, God's gift of grace.
Hush, little baby...

3 Wise men from far, soon they will come,
worship and gifts they bring;
incense for prayer, myrrh for a tomb,
gold to reveal a king.
Hush, little baby...
