Lully lullay, lully lullay
The falcon hath borne my mate away.
He bore him up, he bore him down
He bore him into an orchard brown.
And in that orchard there was a hall
That was hanged with purple and pall
And in that hall there was a bed
And it was hanged with gold so red
And on this bed there lyeth a knight
His wounds bleeding day and night.
By that bed there kneeleth a maid
And she weepeth both night and day.
And by that bedside standeth a stone
"Corpus Christi" written thereon.
Anonymous, 1504 or earlier. Text modernised by PH. "Corpus Christi" = "The body of Christ."
