Lyrics: Hush, my baby, Mary's sleeping.
Child of heaven, Son of God.
You have come to free your people.
You were born to conquer death.
Rest now softly on my bosom,
Child of heaven, Son of God.

Sleep, my darling, have no worries.
One day you will be a King.
All the world is full of turmoil.
All the world is full of sin.
Knowing you is life eternal,
Child of heaven, Son of God.

You alone can bear my burden.
You alone can save my soul!
Oh, have mercy on my weakness,
Child of heaven, Son of God!

Little baby, Son of God!
