Hymn/Song Information

Sleep my Saviour sleep On Thy bed of hay Angels




Sleep, my Savior, sleep,
On Thy bed of hay,
Angels in the spangled heaven
Sing their gladsome Christmas carols
Till the dawn of day.


Sleep, my Savior, sleep
On Thy bed of hay,
Ere the mourning angel cometh
To the moonlit olive garden
Wiping tears away.


Sleep, my Savior, sleep
Sweet on Mary’s breast,
Now the shepherds kneel adoring,
Now the mother’s heart is joyous,
Take a happy rest.


Sleep, my Savior, sleep
Sweet on Mary’s breast.
Crucified, with wounds and bruises,
Bleeding, purple, stained, disfigured,
One day Thou wilt rest.
