The Song         Vol. 1   issue 2                            Sweet was the song                                                    16th century carol

Sweet was the song the Virgin sang,

When she to Bethlem Juda came

And was delivered of a son,

That blessed Jesus hath to name:

Lula, lula, lula, lullaby, "Sweet babe," sang she.


"My son, And eke a Saviour born,

Who hast vouchsafèd from on high

To visit us that were forlorn:

Lula, lula, lula, lullaby, Sweet babe", sang she

And rocked him sweetly on her knee.
