hush…

This was how we finally sang it.

Hush little baby
don’t say a word
for Herod’s men are coming
with death in their sword

Hush little baby
don’t make a sound
the darkness covers us
grief all around

Voices sound in the town of Ramah
the wail of lament
Rachel weeping for her children
she says no, no, no for consolation
for her babies, her babies, they are no more.

Hush little baby
don’t say a word
for Herod’s men have come
with death in their sword

Hush little baby
don’t make a sound
the darkness covers us
grief all around

The king is born, but death surrounds him
the light has come in darkness
Are we pawns on this stage of horror
there is no no no sense in it all
a joke to die for

Hush little baby
don’t say a word
for Herod’s men have come
with death in their sword

Hush little baby
don’t make a sound
the darkness covers us
grief all around

Oh hear the cries
Oh hear the cries of the innocents

Hush little baby
don’t say a word
you don’t say a word
no more…
