Balulalow (Traditional Scottish)

Balulalow (Traditional Scottish)

I come from hevin which to tell
The best nowells that e'er befell
To you thir tythings threw I bring
And I will of them say and sing

This day to you is born ane child
Oh Marie meik and Virgin mild
That bliss it bairn benign and kind
Sall you rejoyce baith hart and mind

Lat us rejoys and be blyth
And with the Hyrdis go full swyth
And see what God of his grace hes done
Throu Christ to bring us to his throne

My saull and life stand up and see
Wha lyis in ane cribbe of tree
What babe is that, sa gude and fair
It is Christ, God's son and Air

O my deir hart, yung Jesus sweit
Prepare the creddill in my spreit!
And I shall rock thee in my hart
And never mair fra thee depart

Bot I sall praise thee evermoir
With sangis sweit unto thy gloir
The kneis of my hart sall I bow
And sing that rycht Balulalow

(trad. Scottish)
