Description

A beautiful Basque carol, arranged for SATB a cappella in a gentle 6/8. A Christmas lullaby with foreshadowing of Easter. Easy to learn because of the repetition of material. One or two solos. Just a delicious setting!

Lyrics

Sing lullaby, lullaby baby,
now reclining, sing lullaby.
Hush, do not wake the infant king,
Angels are watching, stars are shining
over the place where he is lying.
Sing lullaby.

Sing lullaby, lullaby baby,
now a-sleeping, sing lullaby.
Hush, do not wake the infant king,
So,On will come sorrows with the morning,
so,On will come bitter grief and weeping.
Sing lullaby.

Sing lullaby, lullaby baby,
now a-dozing, sing lullaby.
Hush, do not wake the infant king,
So,On comes the cross, the nails, the piercing,
then in the grave, a last resposing.
Sing lullaby.

Sing lullaby, lullaby,
is the babe awaking? Sing lullaby.
Hush, do not wake the infant king,
Dreaming of Easter, gladsome morning,
conquering death, its bondage breaking.
Sing lullaby.
