featuring Cantus Novus
Sweet was the song, the song the Virgin sang,
When she to Bethlehem Juda came
And was delivered of a son,
That blessed Jesus hath to name:
Lulla, lulla, lulla, lulla, lulla, lullaby.
‘Sweet babe’ sang she, Sweet babe, my son,
And eke a Saviour, a Saviour born,
Who hast vouchsafed from on high to visit us that were forlorn:
La lula, lula, la lullaby
‘Sweet babe,’ said she and rocked Him sweetly,
Rocked Him sweetly on her knee.
La lula, lula, lula, lula, La lula, lullaby.
