The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

The Other Night

English, 15th Century
A Version of This Endris Night

The other night
I saw a sight,
A star as bright as day
And e'er among
A maiden sang;
Bybye, bybye, lulay.

Mine own dear Son,
Whence art Thou come?
Art Thou not God always?
But n'er the less,
I will not cease;
To sing bybye, lulay.

The angels bright,
Round Me shall light.
And guard Me night and day
And in that sight
Thou may'st delight,
To sing bybye, lulay.

Me thinks of right
The Lord of might
Should like in rich array;
But n'er the less
I will not cease,
To sing bybye, lulay.

Within thine arms,
Thou'lt keep me warm,
And guard Me night and day
And if I weep
And do not sleep,
Then sing bybye, lulay.
