Trying to find a hymn or lullaby

You are here

One of the older women in our choir was singing a song at Christmas, and I've never heard it before. It's a Christmas-themed lullaby, and I haven't been able to find it online. 

Here's the lyrics she remembered. Does this ring a bell with anyone? Anyone know the title or compos

Lying in a manger bed

Heavenly baby sleep

Angels hovering overhead

Lovingly vigil keep

 

[some missing]

Heavenly baby sleep

 

Sleep and gently, sweetly dream

While the stars above thee gleam

In repose thine eyelids close

Sleep and dream, sweetly dream
