Composer: Anonymous (Traditional)
Original text and translations
Little Jesus, sleep, sleep.
1. Lullaby, dear Jesu, my jewel,
Mary is guarding you from cold so cruel.
2. Shut tight your eyes, baby,
And cease your weeping,
Mary is holding you,
While you are sleeping.
3. Lullaby, flower of flowers
Lullaby, Jesu, O rosebud of ours.
4. Sleep now, tiny baby,
Like small glowing star,
Angels, too, guard you from afar.
