Subject: RE: Christ Child Lullaby
"Frankensence" yes definitely. It was the druids who drank fermented fluids.

The DT words are the ones I learned from a Clancy Brothers recording.

Kathy Matea has recorded a version (on Good News) that has the following verses: ^^
My love, my treasured one are you
My sweet and lovely son are you
You are my love my darling new
Unworthy I, of you.

Your mild and gentle eyes proclaim
The loving heart with which you came
A tender, helpless tiny babe
With boundless gifts of grace.

King of Kings, Most Holy One
God the Son, Eternal One
You are my God and helpless son
High ruler of mankind.

I think I have another version somewhere also, I will look.
