Shaw, Martin - Coventry Carol

Coventry Carol

Lully, lulla, thou little tiny child
O sisters too, how may we do.
For to preserve this day
This poor youngling, for whom we sing.
By, by, lully, lullay?
Herod, the king, in his raging,
Charged he hath this day
His men of might, in his own sight,
all children young to slay.
That woe is me, poor child for thee!
And ever morn and day,
For thy parting neither nor say nor sing,
By, by, lully, lullay
