Sleep, Baby, Sleep - orchestral version

Sleep, Baby, Sleep will be offered as a bonus track (details forthcoming) on a wonderfully diverse Christmas album by Fetal Records called "A Colorful Christmas" in late October, 2015. Watch here for links to iTunes, CDBaby, Amazon Music and Spotify. You may preview the song from this page.

Featuring Internationally known bluesman Charlie Sayles, Tony Fazio, Scott Taylor, Richard Schletty, Greg Phillips, Subsidiarity, Law & Order, Ken Wenzel, and Jane Kraemer. “If you build it, they will come.” And so they came and came in force. Twelve originals and six traditional covers.

Sleep, Baby, Sleep is a collaboration with my brother Chris who dreamt this song and with Andre van Haren ( who did the orchestral arrangement. Sheet music from simple to orchestral arrangements is available upon request. 

I also have this song available with Spanish lyrics here: 

Sleep, Baby, Sleep

[verse 1]
Sleep, Baby, sleep 
on this magic night. 
Sleep, Baby, sleep 
while Mother holds you tight. 
Little baby, so so small, 
lying in that humble stall. 
So sleep, Baby, sleep 
while angels watch they keep.

[verse 2]
Sleep, Baby, sleep 
while angels hum a tune. 
Sleep, Baby, sleep 
beneath the golden moon. 
Kings and shepherds see the star 
and come to visit from afar. 
So sleep, Baby, sleep 
while angels watch they keep.

Born in the fullness of time, 
Spirit and matter combine. 
Praise to the King of all kings, 
The Son of the God of all things. 
Here in this portal, 
new life immortal. 
In a manger with sheep 
in soft wool you sleep.

[verse 3]
Sleep, Baby, sleep 
beneath the starry sky. 
Sleep, Baby, sleep 
to Mary's lullaby. 
You have come to save us all, 
little Jesus, so so small. 
Sleep, Baby, sleep.
Sleep, Baby, sleep.

Nice collaboration work

I like it. Christmassy; would suit the night of Christmas. Nice and warm music, filling the mind with hope - even if the word is not used once in the song. Well done to you all.

To God, Glory; to man, none.

Filling the mind with hope

Indeed, filling the mind with hope is the theme of the song. Thanks, Wede. We appreciate your positive comments.
