This New Christmas Carrol 2

1. This new Christmas carrol
Let us chearfully sing,
To the honor and glory
Of our Heavenly King,
Who was born of a Virgin,
Blessed Mary by name,
For poor sinners' redemption
To the world here he came.

2. The mighty Jehovah
By the prophets foretold,
That the sweet babe of Heaven
Mortal eyes should behold.
Both King, Prince, and Prophet
Nay, our Saviour beside,
Let his name through all ages
Ever be glorified.

3. Now, when Joseph and Mary
Was espoused, we find,
Having seen her condition,
He was grieved in mind
Aye, and thought to dismiss her
Whom he loved so dear;
But an Angel from Heaven
Did her innocence clear.

4. He declared in a vision,
That a Son she should have.
By the Father appointed
Fallen mortals to save;
And the same should be called
Blessed Jesus by name:
From the high court of Heaven
This ambassador came.

5. Then the righteous man Joseph
He believed the news,
And the sweet Virgin Mary
He did no wise refuse.
Thus the blest amongst women,
She did bear and bring forth
A sweet Prince of Salvation
Both in Heaven and Earth.

6. When the days of her travail
Did begin to draw nigh,
Righteous Joseph and Mary
They immediately
To the city of David,
To be taxed indeed,
E'en as Caesar Augustus
Had firmly decreed.

7. Being coming to the city,
Entertainment they craved,
But the inns were so filled
They no lodging could have;
For the birth of our Saviour,
Tho' he was Prince of all,
He could have there no place
But a poor oxes stall.

8. Now the proud may come hither,
And perfectly see
The most excellent pattern
Of humility;
For instead of a cradle,
Deckt with ornaments gay,
Here the great King of Glory
In a manger he lay.

9. As the Shepherds were feeding
Of their flocks in the field,
The sweet birth of our Saviour
Unto them was reveal'd,
By blest Angels of Glory,
Who those tidings did bring,
And directed the Shepherds
To their Heavenly King.

10. When the Wise Men discover'd
This bright heavenly Star,
Then with gold and rich spices
Straight they came from afar,
In obedience to worship
With a heavenly mind,
Knowing that he was born
For the good of mankind.

11. Let us learn of those sages,
Who were wise, to obey;
Nay, we find through all ages
They have honour'd this day,
Ever since our Redeemer's
Bless'd nativity,
Who was born of a Virgin
To set sinners free.
