"Coventry Carol" as written by and Joseph R Vargo....
Lullay, thou little tiny child
Sleep well, lullay, lullay
And smile while dreaming little one
Sleep well, lullay, lullay
Farewell, lullay, lullay

O sisters, too, what may we do
To preserve on this day
This poor youngling for whom we sing
Sleep well, lullay, lullay
Farewell, lullay, lullay

Herod the king in his raging
Set forth upon this day
By his decree, no lives spare he
All children young to slay
All children young to slay

Then woe is me, poor child, for thee
And ever mourn and say
For thy parting, neither say nor sing
Farewell, lullay, lullay
Farewell, lullay, lullay

And when the stars fill darken skies
In their far vetchers stay
And smile as dreaming little one
Farewell, lullay, lullay
Dream now, lullay, lullay
