A Christmas Lullaby.   SATB

                                                                 words and music by Elizabeth Sidebotham
One is the star that shone over Bethlehem
Two were the oxen that witnessed the birth
Three, the wise men who travelled the desert
With their gifts of gold and incense and myrrh
Ah, baby Jesus we’ll rock you, we’ll rock you
We’ll rock you to sleep on this cold winter’s night
Four were the shepherds away on the hillside
Five were the flocks they watched over by night
Six, the heavenly throng of angels
Appearing before them, a glorious sight
Ah, baby Jesus we’ll rock you, we’ll rock you
We’ll rock you to sleep on this cold winter’s night
Seven were the days that passed by so quickly
Eight for the warning of Herod’s cruel scheme
Nine hundred were the soldiers who came looking for Jesus
But the new baby Boy King was nowhere to be seen
Ah, baby Jesus we’ll rock you, we’ll rock you
We’ll rock you to sleep on this cold winter’s
Ah, baby Jesus we’ll rock you, we’ll rock you
We’ll rock you to sleep on this cold winter’s night
One is the star on this cold winter’s night.
