Sweet Baby

Lyrics

Another version you can use as a lullaby

Sweet baby, sleep; what ails my dear?
What ails my darling thus to cry?
Be still, my child, and lend thine ear,
To hear me sing thy lullaby.

My pretty lamb, forbear to weep;
Be still, my dear; sweet baby, sleep.
Thou blessed soul, what can'st thou fear
What things to thee can mischief do?

Thy God is now thy father dear,
His Holy Spouse thy mother too.
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep;
Be still, my babe; sweet baby, sleep.

Whilst thus thy lullaby I sing,
For thee great blessings ripening be;
Thine Eldest Brother is a king,
And hath a kingdom bought for thee.

Sweet baby, then forbear to weep;
Be still, my babe; sweet baby, sleep.
Sweet baby, sleep, and nothing fear;
For whatsoever thee offends.

By thy protector threatened are,
And God and angels are thy friends.
Sweet baby, then, forbear to weep;
Be still, my babe; sweet baby, sleep.

Sweet baby girl please dont cry
Mommys here to hold you tight.

Sweet baby girl dry your eyes
Mommys here to love you dear.

Sweet baby girl close your eyes
Mommys here all through the night.
