9Shepherds were dozing on a hillside, Looking after their sheep, When suddenly in the night skyA bright light shone from heavenAngels roused them from their sleep
10King Jesus is born. Leave your sheep & find Him. Only a tiny babe in a stable in Bethlehem.What amazing news! God has sent his only sonGlory to God and peace to everyone,Glory to God and peace to everyone.
11My baby lies in a stall, not in a cot or a bed. No lovely clothes or bedding,Just straw is under his head.This child is a wonder to me; it's such a special timeThe world will see this Saviour of mankind.This child is a wonder to me; it's such a special time.
12How can I father this child? Looking so helpless & small? I am told he’s God's son,He doesn't seem it at all.What treasure have I here?How do l keep Him safe?I love him so,This picture of God's grace.This picture of God's grace?
13Sleep baby Jesus, this lovely bundle of joy. Heaven is rejoicing at the sight of this baby boy soHeaven is rejoicing at the sight of this baby boy.Mary and Joseph’s Lullaby
14I cannot believe this news I am hearing, A new king appearing to steal my crown.My kingdom is slipping right out of my hand,This king will take over and steal my land.How can I stay on my throne?No waiting till that boy has grown.
15I cannot believe this news I am hearing, A new king appearing to steal my crown.My kingdom is slipping right out of my hand,This king will take over and steal my land.I’ll have to get rid of Him,I’ll murder that baby king.
16Guards, come and listen, for you have a mission Kill every two-year old boy that you find.This is my order to go up to Judah,I mustn’t see any boys left behind.
