1. Mary had a little baby, born in Bethlehem
Every time the baby cry, she rocked him in a weary land.
Ain’t that a-rockin’ all night (repeat twice)
All night long.
2. Wise men came from the East,
Guided by the Star,
With gold, myrrh and frankincense
While she rock’d him in a weary land. Refrain
3. Herod heard the news;
The Baby he did seek.
The Lord told Mary
Just to rock him in a weary land. Refrain
