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.
