Subject(s): Mary. Mother Of Jesus; Women In The Bible; Virgin Mary

Closely to my heart I hold thee,
O my blessed Son!
Safe Thy mother's arms enfold thee,
--Sleep, my little One!

I will sing to Thee, my Treasure,
Songs so low and sweet,
Love I lay without a measure
At Thy tender feet.

All my soul is bowed with wonder
Whilst my watch I keep,
Thou hast cast its bonds asunder,
--Sleep, my Darling, sleep!

Soft, I'll sing Thee lullabies,
Jesu, Son and King!
Listening Spirits in the skies
Hear a mother sing!

O great Angels of the Father
Guard His holy Son!
In my woman's arms I gather
Close this little One!
