Advent Praise 12-11-16

 It Will Soon be Dark

It will soon be dark, it will soon be night,
That’s why I come to You, my Saviour keeping watch.
I’d like to sing a little song to the darling child, the little one.
You don’t feel like sleeping, I hear You only cry.
Hey, hey, hey, hey!
Sleep sweetly, dearest child.

Forget now, oh child, Your troubles, Your sorrow,
That You must suffer there in the stable in the strange land.
The angels adorn Your bed,
A king in his house could not look better,
Hey, hey, hey, hey!
Sleep sweetly, dearest child.

Oh little child, You’re just so beautiful in the little crib;
It seems to me, I might never go away from You there.
I wish You from the heart the sweetest rest,
The angels of heaven, they tuck You in.
Hey, hey, hey, hey!
Sleep sweetly, dearest child.

⎡Close Your eyes in rest and peace
And just give me Your blessing as I depart.
Then also my sleep will be without worry,
Then I can look forward to lying down.
Hey, hey, hey, hey!
Sleep sweetly, dearest child.⎦
