The Christ-Child Lay on Mary's Lap

  1. The Christ-child lay on Mary's lap,
    His hair was like a light;
    The Christ-child lay on Mary's lap,
    His hair was like a light.
    O weary, weary were the world,
    O weary, weary were the world,
    But here is all aright:
    The Christ-child lay on Mary's lap,
    His hair was like a light.
  2. The Christ-child lay on Mary's breast,
    His hair was like a star;
    The Christ-child lay on Mary's breast,
    His hair was like a star.
    O stern and cunning are the kings,
    O stern and cunning are the kings,
    But here the true hearts are:
    The Christ-child lay on Mary's breast,
    His hair was like a star.
  3. The Christ-child lay on Mary's heart,
    His hair was like a fire;
    The Christ-child lay on Mary's heart,
    His hair was like a fire.
    O weary, weary were the world,
    O weary, weary were the world,
    But here the world's desire:
    The Christ-child lay on Mary's heart,
    His hair was like a fire.
  4. The Christ-child stood at Mary's knee,
    His hair was like a crown;
    The Christ-child stood at Mary's knee,
    His hair was like a crown.
    And all the flowers looked up at Him,
    And all the flowers looked up at Him,
    And all the stars looked down:
    The Christ-child stood at Mary's knee,
    His hair was like a crown.
