Christ Child Lullaby My love, my pride, my treasure oh My wonder new and pleasure oh My son, my beauty, ever You Who am I to bear You here? The cause of talk and tale am I The cause of greatest fame am I The cause of proudest care on high To have for mine, the King of all And though You are the King of all They sent You to the manger stall Where at Your feet they all shall fall And glorify my child, the King There shone a star above three kings To guide them to the King of kings They held You in their humble arms And knelt before You until dawn They gave You myrrh and gave You gold Frankincense and gifts untold They traveled far these gifts to bring And glorify their new born King _________ Isla Cameron learned this from Mrs. Nicholson, a traditional Irish singer. Translated from the Gaelic by Seamus Ennis. Sung by Judy Collins DC
