Description

Text by Richard Rowlands. A tender and gentle reflection from Mary's perspective. SATB a cappella.

Upon my lap my Sovereign sits and leans upon my breast;
Meantime his love maintains my life, And gives, and gives my sense her rest.

Lullaby, my little boy, lullaby, mine only joy.

I grieve that duty doth not work all that my wishing would,
Because I would not be to thee but in the best I should.

Yet as I am and as I may, I must and will be thine.
Though all too little for thyself, Vouchsafing to be mine
