Mary and Joseph’s Lullaby

Leigh Newton © 1983 – Recorded on “Christmas in the Scrub” by Leigh Newton

1. Little baby don’t you cry, don’t you cry tonight
Don’t be scared for Mary’s here holding you so tight.
Drink you small one, drink your fill, you give me such delight
To see you here in Mary’s arms is filling me with life.

2. This summer heat can be so cruel, it makes it hard to sleep,
I’ll sponge you down to keep you cool, lying on your sheet.
There’s station hands to see you child, they scarely make a sound
Their eyes are filled with life and love and tears are trickling down.

3. I am just a country girl yet the angel came that day
And I will never understand why I am blessed this way
Just a little boy from God with love for every boy and girl
Born to be the king of all, born to love this world.

Coda:
Little baby don’t you cry, don’t you cry tonight,
Don’t be scared for Mary’s here holding you so tight.
