Mary's lullaby

Sleep now, my child, Sleep now, my son. All still is the night, All bright is the star. Sleep now, my child, Sleep now, my son, My holiest one. The angels are singing, The wise men are bringing Their gifts in the night -- Peace for the heart And joy for the soul From the father of all. Sleep now, my child. Sleep now, my son. Fear not the moon. Fear not the sun. Fear not the morning Brightness of light. Oh, hush-a-by child. Hush now, my son, My holiest one. So still is the night. So bright is the star. Hush now, my child. Oh, hush-a-by now, my son.
