Representative Text

1 Carol, sweetly carol,
A Saviour born today;
Bear the joyful tidings,
Oh, bear them far away.
Carol, sweetly carol,
Til earth's remotest bound
Shall bear the mighty chorus,
And echo back the sound.

Carol, sweetly carol,
Carol, sweetly today;
Bear the joyful tidings,
Oh, bear them far away.

2 Carol, sweetly carol,
As when the Angel throng
O'er the vales of Judah,
Awoke the heavenly song.
Carol, sweetly carol,
Good will, with peace and love,
Glory in the highest,
To God who reigns above. [Refrain]

3 Carol, sweetly carol,
The happy Christmas time;
Hark! the bells are pealing
Their merry, merry chime;
Carol, sweetly carol,
Ye shining ones above,
Sing in loudest numbers,
Oh, sing redeeming love. [Refrain]
