Original text and translations
Middle English text
Lullaby, lullaby, lullaby.
I saw a fair mayden sytten and sing,
She lulled a lyttel childe, a sweete Lording.
Lullay myn lyking, my dere sonne, my sweeting,
Lullay my dere herte, myn own dere darling.
That same Lord is he who made alle thing;
Of alle lordes he is Lord, of alle kynges Kyng.
There was mickle melody at that chyldes birth;
All that were in heavenly bliss, they made mickle mirth.
