Poem: Mary was Watching, Anonymous, Traditional Czech Carol

Mary was watching tenderly
Her little son;
Softly the mother sang to sleep
Her darling one.
Sleep, lovely Child, be now at rest,
Thou Son of Light;
Sleep, pretty fledgling, in Thy nest
All thro’ the night.

Mary has spread your manger bed,
Sleep, little Dove,
God’s creatures all draw near to praise,
Crown of my love.
Sleep little Pearl, Creator, Lord,
Our homage take;
Bees bring you honey from their hoard,
When you wake.
