In Your Care


Sleep, Mary sleep, I will be there soon
Entering earth through your precious womb
My child oh my mother of earth
Give me the gift of birthSleep, Joseph sleep, may you dream of love
Peace to the earth through your newborn Son
Oh raise me with honor and pride
I will stand by your sideAnd I’ll be in your care (safely in your care), safely harbored there
(just shelter me in care)
My heavenly host will follow me close (oh so close)
And I will be in your careNow Israel oh my chosen one (my chosen one)
Prophets foretold that this day would come
I pray you will know I’m your King
Salvation is what I bring (salvation’s what I bring)And I’ll be in your care (so closely in your care), safely harbored
there (just shelter me in care)
My heavenly host will follow me close (oh so close)
But always remember, please be aware, that I will be in your careCare for me and shelter me in childhood
Knowing that someday I’ll have to go
And though it may seem hopeless when I’m hanging on a tree
You can know for certain I’ll return
But until then…You’ll be in my care (so closely in my care), safely harbored there (so
sheltered with my care)
