​Coventry Carol

This song is by Nox Arcana and appears on the album Winter's Knight (2005).

Lullay, thou little tiny child,
Sleep well, lullay, lullay.
And smile while dreaming, little one.
Sleep well, lullay, lullay.
Fair well, 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.
Fair well, 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,
Fair well, lullay, lullay.
Fair well, lullay, lullay.

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