The other night
I saw a light!
A star as bright as day!
And ever among
A maiden sung
By-by, baby, lullay.

This virgin clear
Who had no peer
Unto her son did say,
"I pray thee, som,
Grant me a boon
To sing by-by, lullay.

"Let child or man,
Whoever can
Be merry on this day,
And blessings bring
So I shall sing
By-by, baby, lullay."
