Said the night wind to the little lamb
Do you see what I see
Way up in the sky little lamb
Do you see what I see
A star, a star
Dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite

Said the little lamb to the shepard boy
Do you hear what I hear
Ringing through the sky shepard boy
Do you hear what I hear
A song, a song
High above the tree
With a voice as big as the sea
With a voice as big as the sea

Said the shepard boy to the mighty king
Do you know what I know
In your palace wall mighty king
Do you know what I know
A child, a child
Shivers in the cold
Let us bring him silver and gold
Let us bring him silver and gold

Said the king to the people everywhere
Listen to what I say
Pray for peace people everywhere
Listen to what I say
The child, the child
Sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light

The child, the child
Sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light

    This song is about how the night wind whispers to the most insignificant, the lamb, that something amazing is happening and escalates to a wider meaning. That wider meaning is the beautiful mystery of our lord, jesus christ being born. The shepherd boy refers to the shepherds at that time, as they were often young boys. As someone has mentioned above, the king is the magi (as in plural). Beautiful song, moving lyrics, not exactly the most accurate.
