about

A little lullaby for the holidays. No reindeer, no fat man in a red suit, just a young mother and her newborn.

lyrics

The moon above is bowing low
Through the cedars, the soft winds blow
For you, my child

The stars, they shine with a heav'nly light
Angel voices sing goodnight
And they praise your name
Sing praises to you, the boy king

Hush now, baby
Sleep, little one
In the morning they'll come to kneel at your throne
But tonight you're my own
My love, my only son

That I were wise and dutiful
I'd know why I'm given so beautiful
A gift as this

I have no feathers for your bed
No golden crown to lay on your head
But my hands are strong
And my love is as deep as the sea

Hush now, baby
Sleep, little one
In the morning they'll come to kneel at your throne
But tonight you're my own
My love, my only son
