The Virgin is hushing her Baby to rest,
With "Lullaby, lullaby, beautiful Child!"
She presses her wonderful Son to her breast,
Right glad then now is she!

The Babe she is nursing is come down to save,
"O lullaby, lullaby, beautiful Child!"
Poor sinners from darkness and powers of the grave;
Right glad then now is she!

See Jesus looks up in his Mother's kind face,
"O lullaby, lullaby, beautiful Child!"
He smiles on that Mother, the Maid full of Grace.
Right glad then now is she!
