Lyrics + Song

Verse 1
A million miles from the throne of gold, born in a manger dirty and cold
The Savior of the world lay gently sleeping
His innocence and holiness, the greatest Gift of Christmas
Was born to die for those who did not love Him

Chorus
Oh Holy Child, sleep in peace tonight
Oh Holy Child, rest your little eyes
For the angels are singing outside and Your Father is always nearby
Sleep Holy Child, sleep in peace tonight

Verse 2
Softly He breathes through tiny lips
As the snow falls gently on the winter trees
Soon He’ll give His last breath, His Grace to you and me
So hold Him closely to your heart
And carry Him safely in your arms
The hope of every nation is born within Him

Chorus Repeat

Bridge
Child, the cold world is waiting for you, to shine your love in the dark
You are the great gift of Christmas, the greatest gift for our heart
And when your small hands bear the scars, and your love flows down the cross
You’ll bring Heaven, you’ll bring Heaven, you’ll bring Heaven to our heart

Final Chorus
Oh Holy Child, sleep in peace tonight
Oh Holy Child, rest your little eyes
For the angels are singing outside and your Father is always nearby
Sleep, Holy Child
Sleep in peace tonight.
