A Christmas Carol
Anonymous - c. 1500

The other night
I saw a light!
A star as bright as day!
And ever among
A maiden sung:
'By-by, baby, lullay'.

This virgin clear
Who had no peer
Unto her son did say,
'I pray thee, son,
Grant me a boon
To sing by-by, lullay'.

"Let child or man,
Whoever can
Be merry on this day,
And blessings bring _
So I shall sing
'by-by, baby, lullay'.
