387 Christmas Hymn


In Bethlehem city, in Judah it was,
That Joseph and Mary together did pass,
All for to be taxed when thither they came,
For Caesar Augustus commanded the same.
Then let us be merry, cast sorrow away,
Our Savior Christ Jesus was born on this day.

But Mary's full time being come as we find,
She bro't forth her firstborn to save all mankind;
The inn being full of the heavenly guest,
No place could she find where to lay him to rest.
Then let us be merry, cast sorrow away,
Our Savior Christ Jesus was born on this day.

Blest Mary, blest Mary, so meek and so mild,
All wrapp'd up in swaddling this heavenly child,
Contented she laid where the oxen do feed,
The great God of nature approv'd of the deed.
Then let us be merry, cast sorrow away,
Our Savior Christ Jesus was born on this day.
