Religious Music – A Babe Lies In The Cradle lyrics

A babe lies in the cradle
A little babe so dear
With noble light he shineth
As shines a mirror clear
This little babe so dear.

The babe within the cradle
Is Jesus Christ our Lord
To us all peace and amity
At this good time afford
Thou Jesus Christ our Lord!

Whoso would rock the cradle
Where lies the gentle child
A lowly heart must lead him
By passions undefiled
As Mary pure and mild.

O Jesus, babe beloved
O Jesus, babe divine
How mighty is thy wondrous love
Fill thou this heart of mine
With that great love of thine!
