Verse 2
Oh, sisters too
How may we do,
For to preserve this day?
This poor youngling,
For whom we sing
By, by, lully, lullay.

Verse 3
Herod the King,
In his raging,
Charged he hath this day.
His men of might,
In his own sight,
All young children to slay.

Verse4
That woe is me,
Poor child for thee!
And ever morn and day,
For thy parting
Neither say nor sing
By, by, lully, lullay!
