Lullay, lullow

15th-century English lullaby, from a manuscript in the British Library

Lullay, lullow, lully lullay,
Bewy, bewy, lully, bewy,
Lully, lullow, lully, lullay.
Baw, baw, my bairne,
Slepe softly now.

I saw a swete and semly syght,
A blisful bird,
A blossom bright,
That murning made and mirth among.

A Maiden moder mek and myld,
In cradle kep,
A knave child,
That softly slept, she sat and sange.
