Male Voice Choir: Words

Verse 1 (Low voices):

Still, still, still,
The child's eyes softly close.
And Mary, breathless,
Draws him, weeping,
To her heard made pure for keeping.
Still, still, still,
His bright eyes softly close.

Verse 2 (High voices):

Sing, sing, sing,
He hears and sweetly smiles.
And kneeling, Joseph joins in chorus
With the angels bending o'er us.
Sing, sing, sing,
He hears and sweetly smiles.

Verse 3 (Low voices, tune)

Sleep, sleep, sleep,
He breathes a tender sigh,
For soon he'll wake the world from slumber,
Bringing life and endless wonder,
Sleep, sleep, sleep,
He breathes a tender sigh.

Verse 3 (High voices, descent)

Sleep, sleep, O sleep,
He breathes a sigh,
For soon he'll wake
rom slumber,
Bringing life and endless wonder,
Sleep, sleep, O sleep,
He breathes a tender sigh.

Ending (all voices):

Sleep, Holy Jesus, sleep, sleep, sleep.
