Christmas Lullaby

And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger…

Luke 2:7

Through long ages of carols being sung:
bold & bright on that holy night;
tell of wonderful sweet angelic sounds
when the first Christmas came around.

Listen, did wind whistle a sweet refrain;
as mourning doves called in rafters above?
What sounds did Mary make just before
Baby was born; hay scattered on floor?

Did the shepherds use coarse language?
Or did a big brawny brute play his flute?
What of the lost sheep that went astray;
would it be found by morning’s sun ray?

I ask you what classic carols were sung?
Joy to the World, when baby boy came;
Hark the Herald Angel, to the new born King; Away in the Manger, did young Mary sing?

No, I say, Mama just whispered a lullaby.
