The Coventry Carol

Lully, lulla, thou little tiny child,
Bye, bye, lully, lulla;
Thou little tiny child,
Bye, bye, lully, lullay.
  1. O sisters too, how may we do,
    For to preserve this day
    This poor youngling
    For whom we do sing?
    Bye, bye, lully, lullay.
  2. Herod, the king, in his raging,
    Chargèd he hath this day
    His men of might,
    In his own sight,
    All young children to slay.
  3. That woe is me, poor child for Thee!
    And ever mourn and sigh,
    For thy parting
    Never say nor sing:
    Bye, bye, lully, lullay.
Lully, lulla, thou little tiny child,
Bye, bye, lully, lulla;
Thou little tiny child,
Bye, bye, lully, lullay.
