“Sweet Little Jesus” is a tender lullaby for the Christ child. The opening musical statement takes its inspiration from the Spiritual “Sweet Little Jesus Boy,” but the piece follows as wholly original. Unison until the last chorus which combines two sections to create lovely complimentary duet, the piece is quite accessible. The overall effect is one of peace and loveliness.

Text (by Michael Sandvik)

Sweet little Jesus, sweet little Jesus rest your head.
Sweet little Jesus, sweet little Jesus lying in a manger bed.

Dream, dream, baby dream peacefully on the bed of hay.
Dream, dream, baby dream, you are the Savior born today.

Mary looks at sweet Jesus who has come to save the world.
Who will love and trust the Child in whom our hopes are now unfurled?

Dream, dream, baby dream peacefully on the bed of hay.
Dream, dream, baby dream, you are the Savior born today.

-to God alone all glory is given-
