lyrics

VERSE 1
Sleep, Jesus, sleep
We’ve come to see
You who never closed Your eyes
Watching over earth and skies
Now in frail humanity
Must sleep

VERSE 2
Sleep, newborn King
We’ll gently sing
You who reign forevermore
Ruling as the Lord of lords
You who never had a need
Must sleep

CHORUS
Sovereign One
Born as Mary’s son
Prince of Peace
One day You’ll deliver me
Deliver me

VERSE 3
But now sleep, Son of God
We’ll watch in awe
You’ll fulfill the Father’s plan
Reconciling God and man
Now Your promises to keep
Must sleep
