Lully, lullay, Thou little tiny Child,
Bye, bye, lully, lullay.
Lullay, thou little tiny Child,
Bye, bye, lully, lullay.
O sisters too, how may we do,
For to preserve this day
This poor youngling for whom we do sing
Bye, bye, lully, lullay.
Herod, the king, in his raging,
Charged he hath this day
His men of might, in his own sight,
All young children to slay.
That woe is me, poor Child for Thee!
And ever mourn and sigh,
For thy parting neither say nor sing,
Bye, bye, lully, lullay.

I HAVE HAD A FEW DREAMS ,WITH MY SISTER, LAST DREAM ,WE HUGGED
IT WAS AN ETERNAL HUG ,THE HUG

LIGHTNING BOLTS!!
LOVE IS WHY WE ARE HERE!

My pen pal has two names ,from the bible: GABRIEL. KANE.

There's been so many wonderful interpretations of the 'Coventry Carol' but for me it doesn't sound right unless sang by a choir inside a drafty old gothic church, preferably with the lights dimmed. Such a haunting piece of music. Happy Christmas everyone!

The acoustics in a cathedral always make it sound better. Such a beautiful carol.

Derrick Bridges

It is the best!
England , above any other country,
When it comes to sacred songs
Sung by a choir! God speed, sir!

Miklós Andrássy

I agree. I heard this sung at York Minster years ago on a very cold and snowy December day. As I listened it was as if we were connected directly back in history to medieval times... a 'time machine' ... and to experience what this must have felt like to many generations back.

and to you, too! :)

I arrived in Taejon South Korea on Christmas eve in 1958, and the orderly room clerk was playing Christmas carols over the company P.A. system.  This song came wafting through the basecamp,  Signal Company C, and I remember leaning against the barracks in the dark, listening to this song and pondering the love of the Great God of the Universe.  I still remember that night as if it were yesterday.  This is why I love this song.   I will forever love this song this Christmas Carol...
