Rachel Weeps For Her Children, Because They Are No More
LyricsRefrain

Lully, lulla, thou little tiny child,
bye, bye, lully 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.

Refrain

Herod the king in his raging,
charged he hath this day,
his men of night, in his own sight,
all young children to slay.

Refrain
Then woe is me, poor child, for thee!
And every morn and day,
for thy parting not say nor sing
bye, bye, lully lullay.
