Angels are watching over a Child,
Dear little infant, gentle and mild;
Hovering softly, vigil they keep,
Guarding the Baby while He's asleep.
Sleep, dear little Baby, sleep;
Angels over you watch will keep,
Hov'ring 'round your manger bed;
Sleep, Baby, sleep.

Dear little Baby, Jesus, the blest,
Sweet be your slumber, peaceful your rest.
Though in a manger cradled you are,
Angels keep watch by light of a star.
Sleep, dear little Baby, sleep;
Angels over you watch will keep,
Hov'ring 'round your manger bed;
Sleep, Baby, sleep.

Breezes of midnight, whispering low,
Tell of the blessings He shall bestow;
Dear mother, Mary, to Jesus sings,
While angels hover on their bright wings.
Sleep, dear little Baby, sleep;
Angels over you watch will keep,
Hov'ring 'round your manger bed;
Sleep, Baby, sleep.
