Lullaby of Christmas
Gregory Peck
Decca 9-69
Total Time: 19:17

Yes, this story is old as Christmas and yet it’s neither remembered nor told except by the tongue less ones, the water the wind the rain and the snow, by the grasses the trees the rocks and the earth. This Christmas they will tell their story again as they’ve told if for almost 2,000 Christmases past. The few ears that hear may wonder at the strange childlike quality in the voices of all the storytellers, but that’s so very easy to understand. It’s the bright joyful exultant tone of the boy who sang for them one early morning, on Christmas morning, in Bethlehem.

Eldred Gregory Peck (April 5, 1916 – June 12, 2003) was an American actor.

One of 20th Century Fox’s most popular film stars from the 1940s to the 1960s, Peck continued to play important roles well into the 1980s. His notable performances include that of Atticus Finch in the 1962 film To Kill a Mockingbird, for which he won an Academy Award. President Lyndon Johnson honored Peck with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1969 for his lifetime humanitarian efforts. In 1999, the American Film Institute named Peck among the Greatest Male Stars of All Time, ranking at #12. He was named to the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame in 1983.

Close your eyes, precious one for the world is your cradle
Close your eyes, blessed babe
While we sing you to sleep
Hear the breeze through the trees
From the mountains and meadows
It will sing you to sleep
In a lullaby keep

Lullaby of Christmas
Lullaby for Him
Precious Eyes
Sleepy Eyes
Close your eyes and sleep, sleep, sleep.
