The Canticle of Night

Lay lulay  lulay lulay
Threads of memory and dream
I’ll spin for you
In night’s black and silver mantle
We’ll sound the round from death to birth
and when the shining young moon
lifts the old one high
lament will turn to lullaby
and hope will turn the night

Lay lulay lulay   My little babe
And when the world’s at war
It seems love’s circles are all torn
Though a hundred years may pass
Yet mothertime is now
And before each new child's born
we’ll sing for peace
and hope will bring the light  

Lulay, lulay
