Lyrics

Said the night wind to the little lamb,
do you see what I see.

Way up in the sky, little lamb,
do you see what I see.

A star, a star, dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite.

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy,
do you hear what I hear.

Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy,
do you hear what I hear.

A song, a song, high above the trees
With a voice as big as the sea
With a voice as big as the sea.

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king,
do you know what I know.

In your palace warm, mighty king,
do you know what I know.

A Child, a Child shivers in the cold
Let us bring Him silver and gold
Let us bring Him silver and gold.

Said the king to the people everywhere,
listen to what I say.

Pray for peace, people everywhere!
listen to what I say.

The Child, the Child, sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light.

Information About Do You Hear What I Hear

"Do You Hear What I Hear?' is an American Christmas carol written in 1962 and was written as a plea for peace and understanding during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

The composer, Noel Rigney living in N. Y. in the 50s was walking home in a depressed mood. "I saw two mothers with their babies in strollers. The babies were looking at each other and smiling. All of a sudden, my mood was extraordinary". Inspired he wrote the lyrics and handed them to his wife, Gloria Shane, who wrote the music.

"Do You Hear What I Hear?' was first recorded by Harry Simeone Chorale, but it was Bing Crosby's version that became a worldwide smash hit in 1963. Since then there have been multiple interpretations from a variety of artists.
