Text heard on Sample:

Lullay, my loved one, so peaceful, so small,
sleep while the world awakes.
Under the bright star just over your stall,
safe as the morning breaks.
Lullay, lullay.
Jesu, so peaceful, asleep in the hay,
rest till you hear us call.
One day you'll carry our sorrows away,
soon you will save us all.
Jesu, Jesu.
Lullay, my loved one, so peaceful, so small,
rest till the storms pass by.
Lullay, lullay.

- Carol Barratt
