Versuri Sting - Coventry Carol

Album: Sting - If On A Winter's Night...

"When He is King we will give Him a King's gifts, 
Myrrh for its sweetness, and gold for a crown, 
Beautiful robes", said the young girl to Joseph, 
Fair with her first-born on Bethlehem Down. 

Bethlehem Down is full of the starlight, 
Winds for the spices, and stars for the gold, 
Mary for sleep, and for lullaby music, 
Songs of a shepherd by Bethlehem fold. 

When He is King they will clothe Him in grave-sheets, 
Myrrh for embalming, and wood for a crown, 
He that lies now in the white arms of Mary, 
Sleeping so lightly on Bethlehem Down 

Here He has peace and a short while for dreaming, 
Close-huddled oxen to keep him from cold, 
Mary for love, and for lullaby music, 
Songs of a shepherd by Bethlehem Down.
