"Candle: Coventry Carol" as written by and Trad/zimmerman....
Candle, candle, are the children safe now?
Unlike they were long ago
Candle, candle, are the children safe now?
Sing the song of long ago
Candle, candle, are the children safe now?
Unlike we were long ago
Candle, candle, guide us and protect us
From those in darkness
From those in darkness

Lully, lullay, Thou little tiny Child
By, by, lully, lullay
Thou little tiny Child
By, by, lully, lullay

O sisters too, how may we do
For to preserve this day
This poor Youngling for Whom we do sing
By, by, 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 morn and day
For Thy parting neither say nor sing
By, by, lully, lullay

Lully, lullay, Thou little tiny Child
By, by, lully, lullay
Thou little tiny Child
By, by, lully, lullay.
