A Christmas Hymn


Sing Quietly Angels

©2008 Mollie McKibbon

 Sing quietly angels;

Shine softly bright stars;

The baby King’s sleeping

In Mary’s warm arms.



O hear the sweet carols

To Jesus we bring.

The universe welcomes

Our Saviour and King.


  • Please tiptoe you shepherds

Through the stable door.

Good Josesph is praising

God’s blessing out poured.


  • O cattle moo gently;

Dear donkey don’t bray;

As close to the manger

We watch and we pray.


  • Creation’s proclaiming

This true King of Kings

While Jesus is dreaming

Of heavenly things.
