Rocking the Cradle Carol

This is a song of a Mother rocking her Baby to sleep, while outside the winter wind blows and blows, and the rain pours down all night long. Then comes the hail which rattles against the windows and the blasts of thunder which make all the dogs and cats nervous. And still it rains and still the winter blows the wind. But this Baby sleeps happily through it all, and the morning breaks with sun shining brightly and bird – song everywhere.
