Lulla for Christmastide
Awarded Honourable Mention in the Amadeus Choir's 1995
Christmas Carol Competition
Sweet was the song the Virgin sung,
When she to Bethelem was come,
And was delivered of her Son,
That blessed JESUS hath to name:
Lullaby, sweet Babe,' quoth she,
'My Son, and eke* a Saviour born,
Who hath vouchsafèd from on high
To visit us that were forlorn.
Lullaby, sweet Babe,' sang she;
And sweetly rocked him, rocked him, rocked him,
And sweetly rocked him on her knee.
