Taken from a contemporary arrangement of a late sixteenth century Christmas carol for voice and viols.

Lyrics: Anon

Sweet was the song the virgin sang
When she to Bethlem Judah came,
And was delivered of a son,
Who blessed Jesus hath to name.
"Lul-la, lul-la, lul-la, lu-la-by,
Sweet babe", sang she,
"My son, and eke my saviour, born,
Who has vouchsafed from on high
To visit us that were forlorn.
Lul-la, lul-la, lul-la, lu-la-by,
Sweet babe", sang she,
And rocked him gently on her knee.

Anon
(c.1605)

Sweet was the song the virgin sang
