Lyrics

Still, Still, Still
Text: Traditional Austrian: trans. Adrienne Tindall
Music: Salzburg melody, 1819: arr. Austin C. Lovelace

Still, still, still,
Sleep still, my babe, sleep still.
The mother a quiet watch is keeping;
Close on her breast the Savior is sleeping.
Still, still, still;
Sleep still, my babe, sleep still.

Sleep, sleep, sleep;
My baby, rest in sleep.
God’s angels will sing their exultation,
Greeting your birth with sweet jubilation;
Sleep, sleep, sleep,
My baby, rest in sleep.
