The homely human aspect of the Nativity, expressed in a lullaby.

Original Ukrainian words and an English singing translation both provided.

SSA version also available.



Sleep, my Jesus, sleep,
Jesus, fall asleep,
I will rock you all night long,
I will sing a little song,
Lully, rock-a-bye, lully.

Sleep, my baby, sleep,
Rest your head in sleep
In the arms of Mary mild,
Who enfolds her little child,
Lully, rockabye, lully.

Sleep my poor one, sleep,
Fold your arms and sleep.
Here comes Joseph on his feet
Bringing bread for you to eat,
Lully, rockabye, lully.

Sleep, my darling, sleep,
Close your eyes and sleep.
Do not ask about tomorrow,
Future pain and future sorrow,
Lully, rockabye, lully.

Sleep, my Jesus, sleep,
Take my heart, and sleep.
You bring peace to us on earth,
And in heaven, by your birth,
Lully, rockabye, lully.
Sleep, my Jesus, sleep.

words by Sheena Phillips, based on Vladimir Morozov's translation. The original Ukrainian words are included in the score.
