Rock-a-bye Sweet Jesus
Lyrics by Elizabeth Rau
Music by Greg Granoff

Rock a bye, rock a bye,
Rock a bye sweet Jesus

Rock a bye sweet Jesus
How marvelous your birth
Foretold by heavenly angels
The portent of your worth
The shepherds and the wise men
Did follow radiant star
To honor you sweet Jesus
In mange bed afar

Rock a bye, rock a bye,
Rock a bye sweet Jesus

Rock a bye sweet Jesus
This birth which God designed
Born of blessed Mary
Your mother true and kind
With Joseph as your father
The two with you abide
To nurture and protect you
And lovingly provide

Rock a bye, rock a bye
Rock a bye sweet Jesus

Rock a bye sweet Jesus
So innocent and pure
Your presence is a blessing
For all earth’s ails, a cure
God’s gift to us from heaven
To spread your bounteous light
Divine love is the answer
To set the world a right

Rock a bye, rock a bye,
Rock a bye sweet Jesus
