Sleep dear Babe Thy Mother watches
Harm comes not to Thee.
Would that I could rest so calmly
I as safe would be.
Only God's sweet will could then
Sorrow bring through deeds of men.
She will bear Thee far when Herod
Seeks to slaugther Thee;
And when lost will guide Thy footsteps
Back to Gallilee.
Oh ! teach us sweet Babe Divine
Loving trust in her like Thine !
Only when the time is ripened
Unto God's decree
Mary stands aside and watches-
No more shielding Thee.
But this hour is years away
Sleep in her fond care to-day !
Sleep dear Babe this happy morning
Mary watches Thee !
Heavenly choirs and lowly shepherds
And our hearts proclaim with them
Thy dear birth in Bethlehem.
By Margaret E. Jordan.
