Mary's Lullaby (Ennis Sisters) video

Stand silent for a moment, you'll hear a baby cry,
And angels helping Mary sing her gentle lullaby;
With voices soft as music that babies understand,
Young Mary's gentle lullaby
takes Him to slumberland.

Sleep, my precious baby, sleep,
Among the cattle, goats and sheep;
With just a manger to lie in,
The day will come you'll be a king.

The wise men stand with gifts in hand
inside the stable door,
And listen to young Mary sing,
helped by the heavenly choir;
They see the love upon her face
and hear her heavenly song,
Then tenderly she tucks Him in,
and tenderly He yawns.

Sleep, my precious baby, sleep,
Among the cattle, goats and sheep;
With just a manger to lie in,
The day will come you'll be a king.

Sleep, my precious baby, sleep,
Among the cattle, goats and sheep;
With just a manger to lie in,
The day will come you'll be a king.
