A Lullaby

Read 1046 Times
Lullee, lullay,
I could not love thee more
If thou was Christ the King.
Now tell me, how did Mary know
That in her womb should sleep and grow
The Lord of everything?

Lullee, lullay,
An angel stood with her
Who said, ‘That which doth stir
Like summer in thy side
Shall save the world from sin.
The stable, hall and inn
Shall cherish Christmastide.’

Lullee, lullay,
And so it was that Day.
And did she love him more
Because an angel came
To prophesy his name?
Ah no, not so,
She could not love Him more
But loved Him just the same.
Lullee, Lullee, lullay,

Janet Lewis
