The Coventry Carol… January 27, 2017

…a heartbreaking song about the Slaughter of the Innocents, is fitting on this day:

Coventry Carol

Loo lee loo laLullay, Thou little tiny Child,
Bye, bye, loo lee loo lay.
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 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.

"It is great website, thanks for pointing it out."
