1. Sweetest Jesus, meek and mild:
Born this night, the Holy Child.
Love's pure Light, with us to dwell;
Sleep, my child, may peace indwell.

2. Gentle Saviour, thou our Light,
In the darkness ever bright.
Shepherds tend thee, O so sweet,
And the Spirit, Paraclete.

3. Sleep, dear Child, thy Mother rests;
to her love Joseph attests.
Angels' softest voices sing,
Sleep, O Jesus, heavenly King!
