Liam of House Marchmount, Award of the Wolf’s Cub, 2013

We saw a young lad, playing and smiling,
A well behaved imp, a sweet little lordling.

Liam, Our Liking, Our dear one, Our sweeting,
Liam, Our dear heart, Our own dear darling.

That little lordling is worthy of renown
His angelic face never knowing a frown.

Liam, Our Liking, Our dear one, Our sweeting,
Liam, Our dear heart, Our own dear darling.

A Wolf’s Cub We give him to show him Our love
True son of Ealdormere who shines from above.

Liam, Our Liking, Our dear one, Our sweeting,
Liam, Our dear heart, Our own dear darling.

This We have done on November sixteen,
Adrielle and Nigel while royally seating

In Our Canton of Ardchreag, high on the red cliffs,
At an event We so love, being Kingdom A&S.

By THLaird Colyne Stewart, based on “Lullay, mine liking” a 15th century lullaby.

Refrain
Lullay, mine Liking, my dear Son, mine Sweeting,
Lullay, my dear heart, mine own dear darling.

I saw a fair maiden, sitting and sing,
She lulled a little child a sweet lording:
Refrain

That very lord is He that made all things
Of all lords He is Lord (and) King of all king.
Refrain

There was mickle (much) melody at that Child's birth,
All that were in heaven's bliss, they made mickle mirth.
Refrain

Angels bright they sang that night and saiden to that Child,
"Blessed be Thou, and so be she that is both meek and mild."
Refrain


Pray we now to that Child, and to His mother dear,
Grant them His blessing that now maken cheer.
Refrain
