Sweet Baby Jesus

Sweet Baby Jesus

Sweet Baby Jesus
Lying in your cradle
Just waiting, wanting, waiting
Waiting for me to rock you
To rock you back to sleep

But I am miles away
Mind on the undone list
Way too much to do
To stop and rock the baby
To rock sweet Baby Jesus

I’m sorry, Baby Jesus
I didn’t see you there
Just lying in your cradle
Waiting, wanting to be rocked
Rocked back to sleep

Just like me, Baby Jesus
Wanting to be rocked
But much too much to do
Wanting, waiting, wanting
Just like Baby Jesus
