Sweet Mary, sing to Christ the King
1 Sweet Mary,sing to Christ the King
thy lullaby of love;
and sing, my soul, Christ made thee whole,
and hears thee from above.
2 O Bethlehem, no diadem
is found within thy stall;
yet hail the King! My heart shall bring
a crown to mark my all.
3 O wise and noble Magi, show
thy gifts of holy joy;
my hands can bear but tears to spare,
my sins his love employ.
4 O holy child, O Saviour mild,
great King by heaven adored,
no angel throng may sing our song,
Redeemer, Friend and Lord.
