by Pauline A. Long ( flourished 1920 )

The Holy Mother Sings
Language: English 
Hush Thee Child, Thy crying cease,
Close Thine eyes and rest in peace,
Thou who came to bring release
And healing balm to rich and poor in Israel.

  Holy, Holy, Jesu,
  Thou whose birth in days of old,
  Was by prophet bards foretold,
  Messiah, Prince of Peace and King o Kings,
  Emmanuel, Saviour Thou of Israel.

Lying in Thy lowly stall,
Wise men, shepherds, people all,
At Thy feet in silence fall,
With costly gifts of gold and spice adoring.


Hush Thee Child lie calm and still,
Born to do Thy Father's will,
May He keep Thee from all ill
And His shall all the glory be, Forever.
