My sweet little darling

Language: English

My little sweet darling, my comfort and joy,
(Sing lullaby, lulla!)
In beauty surpassing the princes of Troy,
(Sing lullaby, lulla!)
Now suck, child, and sleep, child, thy mother's sweet boy,
(Sing lullaby, lulla!)
The gods bless and keep thee from cruel annoy.
(Sing lullaby, lulla!)
Sweet baby, lulla, lulla, lulla, lulla!
