Verse 1: Little Babe, safe in my arms
Holding you, keeping you warm.
Wrapped in rags, so rough and thin,
helpless child, like porcelain,
how can I protect you from harm?
Verse 2: Heavenly star shines on your face
enfolding you in illustrious grace.
The halo circling your head
makes me fear the road ahead.
I’d sacrifice myself to take your place.
Chorus: Little Babe, heaven made,
In my heart you were gently laid,
where you'll stay my little babe,
Holy child born today.
Verse 3: Lavender sky foreshadows the dawn,
veiling the world in unnatural calm.
Each moment that I hold you dear
sees another moment drawing near,
when you will be the one to right all wrong…
Bridge: Angels sing in praise of you.
Wisemen bow in gratitude.
Shepherds call you “Holy One.”
I call you my precious son.
Lowly born in prophesy,
You will make the innocent free.
To you we will pray: carry our sins away…
Chorus & Outtro
