Lyrics

1.

Lullay, thou little tiny Child.

Bye, bye, lully, lullay.

Lullay, thou little tiny Child.

Bye, bye, lully, lullay.

2.

O sisters, too, how may we do

for to preserve this day

this poor youngling for whom we sing?

Bye, bye, lully, lullay.

3.

Herod, the king, in his raging,

charged he has this day

his men of might in his own sight,

all children young to slay.

4.

Then woe is me, poor Child, for thee,

and ever mourn and say,

for thy parting nor say nor sing

bye, bye, lully, lullay.
