The Cherry Tree Carol 5

1. As Joseph was a-walking
He heard an Angel sing:
"This night there shall be born
Our gracious Heav'nly King;

2. He neither shall be born
In housen nor in hall,
Nor in the place of Paradise,
But in an ox's stall."

3. "He neither shall be clothed
In purple nor in pall;
But all in fair while linen
As wear sweet babies all.

4. He neither shall be rocked,
In silver nor in gold;
But in a wooden cradle
That rocks upon the mould."

5. "He neither shall be christen'd
In white wine nor in red;
But with the fair spring water,
With which we were christened."

6. As Joseph was a-walking
Thus did the Angel sing;
And Mary's Child at midnight
Was born to be our King.

7. The Shepherds heard these tidings
Rejoicing much in mind;
And went to Bethlehem straitway,
The Son of God to find.

8. Then, Christians, be ye merry,
Rejoice, give thanks, and sing;
For on this blessed morning
Is born our Heav'nly King.

[Alternate Last Verse:]

Then be ye glad, good people,
This night of all the year.
And light ye up your candles,
For His star it shineth clear.
