Christmas Carols - 12

Here we see the sanctuary at St Thomas Aquinas Church, Ham. We see baby Jesus in the crib underneath the altar, the crucified Jesus on the cross, and the risen Lord Jesus in the tabernacle.



Sing lullaby!
Lullaby baby, now reclining, sing lullaby!
Hush, do not wake the Infant King.
Angels are watching, stars are shining
Over the place where he is lying:
Sing lullaby!

Sing lullaby!
Lullaby baby, now a sleeping, sing lullaby!
Hush do not wake the Infant King.
Soon will come sorrow with the morning,
Soon will come bitter grief and weeping:
Sing lullaby!

Sing lullaby!
Lullaby baby, now a dozing, sing lullaby!
Hush do not wake the Infant King.
Soon comes the cross, the nails, the piercing,
Then in the grave at last reposing:
Sing lullaby!

Sing lullaby!
Lullaby! is the babe a waking? sing lullaby!
Hush, do not stir the Infant King.
Dreaming of Easter, gladsome morning,
Conquering Death, its bondage breaking:
Sing lullaby!
