Today is born of a Virgin, He who holds the whole Creation in His hand.

Today Is Born Of A Virgin

Coventry Carol (remembering the Slaughter Of The Innocents, 16th cent.)

Lully, lullay, Thou little tiny Child,
By, by, lully, lullay.
Lullay, thou little tiny Child,
By, by, lully, lullay.

O sisters too, how may we do,
For to preserve this day
This poor youngling for whom we do sing
By, by, lully, lullay.

Herod, the king, in his raging,
Charged he hath this day
His men of might, in his own sight,
All children young to slay.

Then, woe is me, poor Child for Thee!
And ever mourn and sigh
For thy parting neither say nor sing,
By, by, lully, lullay.

Good choices, AG. Hope you post Fairouz' matchless "El Yom Oulika" on Good Friday.
