Sleep little baby sleep
Away in a Manger
No crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus
Lay down His sweet head
The stars in the bright sky
Looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep in the hay

And I welcome You in my heart
I pray that we will never part
This love You gave me
Shining for the whole world to see
Shining for the whole world to see

The cattle are lowing
The sweet Baby wakes
The little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes
I love you Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay right by my side
Until morning is night

And I welcome You in my heart
I pray that we will never part
This love you gave me
Shining for the whole world to see
Shining for the whole world to see

In a world where darkness is everywhere
People hurting, no one seems to care
We need your love to shine down on me

You hear me Lord Jesus, I ask you to stay
Close by me forever and love me I pray
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care
And take us to heaven to live with You there

And I welcome You in my heart
I pray that You will never part
This love You gave keeps
Shining for unto us a Child is born
Shining, Emmanuel, Prince of Peace to share
Everlasting Father I love you
What a wonderful King
Keep shining so the whole world will see
Sleep little baby, sleep
Emmanuel... Sleep little baby, sleep
