Song of the Month for July 2018: The Little Star Peeps O’er the Hill

July 19, 2018 by

For Murray and Kendra’s family, every evening ends with “family singing time” – a chance to gather the kids and unwind from a busy day. And every singing time ends with the same favorite, The Little Star Peeps O’er the Hill. We don’t know who wrote the song (it’s listed as anonymous on most sites) but it’s a lullaby that any child will quickly learn – and love. Enjoy the McKernan family’s rendition below.

Listen on SoundCloud.

The little star peeps o’er the hill,
The woods are quiet, the birds are still.
The wind blows softly through the air,
And the love of God is everywhere.
