Christmas Carols 2012


1. Here We Come A-Caroling D

or: Here We Come a-Wassailing English


1. Here we come a-caroling (or: a-wassailing),

Among the leaves so green;

Here we come a-wandering,

So fair to be seen.


(Refrain) Love and joy come to you,

And to you glad Christmas, too.

And God bless you and send you

A happy new year,

And God send you a happy new year.
2. We are not daily beggars

That beg from door to door,

But we are neighbors’ children

Whom you have seen before.


3. God bless the master of this house,

Likewise the mistress, too,

And all the little children

That ‘round the table go.


4. And all your kin and kinsfolk

That dwell both far and near,

I wish you Merry Christmas

And Happy New Year.



2. What Child Is This? Am

William Dix, ca. 1865 17th century English air


1. What Child is this, who, laid to rest

On Mary’s lap is sleeping?

Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,

While shepherds watch are keeping.

This, this is Christ the King

Whom shepherds guard and angels sing.

Haste, haste to bring him laud

The Babe, the son of Mary.


2. Why lies He in such mean estate

Where ox and ass are feeding?

Good Christian, fear: for sinners here

The silent Word is pleading.

Nails, spear, shall pierce Him through,

The Cross be borne, for me, for you.

Hail, hail, the Word made flesh,

The Babe, the son of Mary.


3. So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh,

Come peasant, king, to own Him.

The King of kings salvation brings,

Let loving hearts enthrone Him.

Raise, raise the song on high

The Virgin sings her lullaby.

Joy, joy, for Christ is born

The Babe, the Son of Mary.



3. We Three Kings of Orient Are Am

John H. Hopkins, 1857


1. We three kings of Orient are

Bearing gifts, we traverse afar.

Field and fountain, moor and mountain,

Following yonder star.


O, star of wonder, star of night,

Star with royal beauty bright.

Westward leading, still proceeding,

Guide us to thy perfect light.


2. Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain,

Gold I bring to crown Him again.

King forever, ceasing never,

Over us all to reign.


3. Frankincense to offer have I;

Incense owns a Deity nigh.

Prayer and praising, all men raising,

Worship Him, God most high.


4. Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume

Breathes a life of gathering gloom;

Sorr’wing, sighing, bleeding, dying,

Sealed in the stone cold tomb.


5. Glorious now behold Him arise,

King and God and Sacrifice,

Alleluia, Alleluia,

Earth to the heav’ns replies.

By, by, lully, lullay.


O sisters too, how may we do,

For to preserve this day

This poor Youngling for Whom we sing

Herod the king, in his raging,

Charged he hath this day

His men of might, in his own sight,

All young children to slay.

For Thy parting, nor say nor sing,

By, by, lully, lullay.


6. The Huron Carol (Wendat: Jesous Ahatonhia) Em

Jean de Brebeuf, ca. 1643/Trans. by Jesse Edgar


Middleton, 1926; Music: French Canadian melody

1. ‘Twas in the moon of wintertime

when all the birds had fled

That mighty Gitchi Manitou

sent angel choirs instead;

Before their light the stars grew dim

and wandering hunters heard the hymn,

Jesus your King is born,

Jesus is born, in excelsis gloria.
2. Within a lodge of broken bark

the tender babe was found;

A ragged robe of rabbit skin

enwrapped his beauty round

But as the hunter braves drew nigh

the angel song rang loud and high

Jesus your King is born,

Jesus is born, in excelsis gloria.


3. The earliest moon of wintertime

is not so round and fair

As was the ring of glory

on the helpless infant there.

The chiefs from far before him knelt

with gifts of fox and beaver pelt.

Jesus your King is born,

Jesus is born, in excelsis gloria.


4. O children of the forest free,

O seed of Manitou

The holy Child of earth and heaven

is born today for you.

Come kneel before the radiant boy

who brings you beauty peace and joy.

Jesus your King is born,

Jesus is born, in excelsis gloria.
