The Boy's Dream Lyrics


Christmas Carols

The Boy's Dream Lyrics
1. Last night as I was laid and slept,
When all my prayers were said;
While still my guardian Angels kept
His watch above my head;
I heard his sweet voice caroling,
Full softly in my ear,
A song for Christian boys to sing,
For Christian men to hear.

2. "Thy body be at rest, dear boy,
Thy soul be free from sin;
I'll shield thee from the world's annoy,
And breathe pure words within,
The holy Christmas-tide is nigh,
The season of Christ's Birth:
All glory be to God on high,
And peace to men on earth.

3. "Myself and all the heavenly host
Were keeping watch of old,
And saw the shepherds at their post,
And all the sheep in fold.
Then told we with a joyful cry,
The tidings of Christ's Birth:
Gave glory unto God on high,
And peace to men on earth.

4. "He bowed to all His Father's will,
And meek was He and lowly;
And year by year His thoughts were still
Most innocent and holy.
He did not come to strive or cry,
But ever from His Birth
Gave glory unto God on high,
And peace to men on earth."

5. "Like Him be true, like Him be pure,
Like Him be full in love;
Seek not thine own, and so secure
Thine own which is above:
And still when Christmas-tide draws nigh,
Sing thou of Jesus' Birth;
All glory be to God on high,
And peace to men on earth."
