Candle, candle, are the children safe now?
Unlike they were long ago
Candle, candle, are the children safe now?
Sing the song of long ago

Candle, candle, are the children safe now?
Unlike we were long ago
Candle, candle, guide us and protect us
From those in darkness, from those in darkness

Lully, lullay, Thou little tiny child
By, by, lully, lullay
Thou little tiny child
By, by, lully, lullay

Oh 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 young children to slay

That woe is me, poor child for Thee
And ever morn and day
For Thy parting neither say nor sing
By, by, lully, lullay

Lully, lullay, Thou little tiny child
By, by, lully, lullay
Thou little tiny child
By, by, lully, lullay
