Praise ye the Lord

Representative Text

1 Carol so merrily, Carol so cheerily;
Joy-bells are sounding near,
Cadence resounding clear;
Garlands we are bringing,
Praises we are singing,
List the echoes ringing,
Praise ye the Lord.

Praise ye the Lord,
Praise, Praise,
O praise ye the Lord.

2 Carol so merrily, Carol so cheerily;
Tidings we bring to you,
Tidings we sing to you;
Message we are telling,
Love divine excelling,
Hark the songs are swelling
Praise ye the Lord. [Refrain]

3 Carol so merrily, Carol so cheerily;
Gladness we bear to you,
Good will declare to you;
Happy songs resounding,
Tell of joy abounding,
Joyful anthems sounding,
Praise ye the Lord. [Refrain]
