Carol of the Children Lyrics

Carol of the Children

 

 

One for the star in the sky over Bethlehem;

Two for the hands that will rock him to sleep;

Three for the kings bringing gold,

bringing myrrh, bringing incense;

Four for the angels that watch over his bedside.

 

 

Blue for the robe of the sweet Virgin Mary;

White for the dawn of the first Christmas Day;

Red for the blood that he shed for us all on Good Friday;

Black for the tomb where he rested till Easter.

 

 

Lullaby! See Jesus asleep;

Angels and shepherds their watch on him keep:

Lullaby! He soon will awake,

For the oxen are stirring and morning will break.

 

 

One for the star in the sky over Bethlehem;

Two for the hands that will rock him to sleep;

Three for the kings bringing gold,

bringing myrrh, bringing incense;

Four for the angels that watch over his bedside.

 

 

And one for the heart, one for the heart,

One for the heart that I give as my off’ring to Jesus
