Sleep Holy Child
For thou art safe in heaven's keeping
Angels hover near for they are here to guide thy sleeping
Shadows of the night will in the morning light be gone
Sleep Holy Child so meek and mild sleep on
At thy crib we find
Faith and hope that shine
Beaming the light is beaming, gleaming to all mankind
Sleep Holy Child
Thy coming brings [can't remember this bit, I was only 6]?
Lord of life and love from heaven above our fears are gone
Oh holy child
So meek and mild
Sleep on

I have the music and lyrics in front of me: The lyrics are as follows:

Sleep Holy Child
For thou art safe in Heaven's keeping
Angels hover near, And they are here to guard Thy sleeping;
Shadows of the night will in the morning light be gone,
Sleep Holy Child, So meek and mild sleep on.
At Thy crib we find
Faith and hope have shined;
Beaming, their light is beaming, Gleaming to all mankind;
Sleep Holy Child,
tonight with Thee our hopes all rest,
Matchless is Thy worth,
For in Thy birth The earth is blest.
Sleep Holy Child,
Thy coming brings a brighter dawn,
Lord of life and love, from heav'n above Our fears are gone!
O holy Child,
So meek and mild
Sleep on

Whoever you are, I am forever in your debt!  I didn't post the original query but have been looking for the lyrics to this for 35 years.  I heard it during a Christmas concert in high school and could only remember the 'matchless is thy worth' part -

thank you SO much.

sleep holy child born on this night angels and mortals bow down at this wondrous sight,
who would have thought one born so small would grew from a child to a king and become saviour of all,
two thousend years have past and gone yet we still remember the night your glory shine,
nations may rise, kindoms may fall,
But the light of heaven shines on Jesus the saviour of all!!

I have also been looking for the complete lyrics to "Sleep Holy Child" for decades. I sang the "Night of Miracles" cantata with my high school choir in 1972 but I have forgotten some of the lyrics over the years. Does anyone have the lyrics to the other songs from the cantata?

Does anyone have the sheet music or know where I can find an accomp. track for "Sleep Holy Child" by John Peterson?

The whole book is available: http://www.musicroom.com/se/id_no/0328606/det ...

Some of the words to the song I am searching for are:
"The day is coming when you'll grow to be a man......"
some of the final words are "Sleep on Sweet Jesus, til the morning light.'
I guess what I am looking for is not by Peterson....it has been many years since I sang that solo.....would love to have the words and music so that I might be able to sing it at Christmas this year.
Thanks for you help anyway........lo37shields76878@yahoo.com
