Representative Text

1 Carol, carol, Christians,
Carol joyfully;
Carol for the coming
Of Christ’s nativity;
And pray a gladsome Christmas,
For all good Christian men.
Carol, carol, Christians,
For Christmas has come again;

Carol, carol, Christians,
Carol joyfully;
Carol for the coming
Of Christ's nativity.

2 Go ye to the forest,
Where the myrtles grow,
Where the pine and laurel
Bend beneath the snow:
Gather them for Jesus;
Wreathe them for His shrine;
Make His temple glorious
With the box and pine. [Refrain]

3 Give us grace, O Saviour,
To put off in might,
Deeds and dreams of darkness,
For the robes of light;
And to live as lowly
As Thyself with men;
So to rise in glory
When Thou com’st again. [Refrain]
