You can find Could I Hold the Baby sheet music here, but my very favorite line of the song is right in the title itself. That sweet little drawl from the small voice of a child saying:

“Could I hold the baby? Will He smile at me?” I just picture each of my little children as they asked to hold their baby sibling and the scene just completely melts my heart.

Could I Hold the Baby Lyrics

Verse 1:
It’s Christmas Eve, I’m tucked in bed,
I’m snug and warm, my prayers are said.
I start to think about the first Christmas Night.
The manger warm, the baby fair,
The star that led the shepherds there,
And what I’d say to Mary as
She smiles at the little Christ child.

Could I hold the baby? Will He smile at me?
Does He know why He is born
And what His life will be?
Could I hold the baby and tell Him of my love?
How glad I am that Jesus Christ
Was sent from heaven above.

Verse 2:
Now every day the whole year through
I’ll think of all that I can do to be like Him a
And live as He showed me how.
And I’ll remember that Christmas toys a
Are not as dear as girls and boys
That Jesus loves each one of us endlessly.
He loves you and me.
