Second Chances Released

I am very happy for my friend and hymn/songwriter and collaborator Colin Gordon-Farleigh who has successfully launched a new career as a country singer in Nashville, USA. In the last year, his songs have been winning numerous number one slots and awards. Together we have produced two bluegrass hymns for congregational singing –  Oh lead us by the hand Lord and I can hear the Saviour calling as well as more traditional hymns that can be found here.

He has just launched a brand new album “Second Chances” – please like and share!

Little Jesus, sweetly sleep (Rocking)

Carol – Little Jesus, sweetly sleep – Lyrics

Little Jesus, sweetly sleep, do not stir
We will lend a coat of fur
We will rock you, rock you, rock you
We will rock you, rock you, rock you
See the fur to keep you warm
Snugly round your tiny form.

Mary’s little baby, sleep, sweetly sleep
Sleep in comfort, slumber deep
We will rock you, rock you, rock you
We will rock you, rock you, rock you
We will serve you all we can
Darling, darling little man.
