New Year’s Carol


(English folk song)

Awake! Awake! you drowsy souls
And hear what I shall tell
Remember Christ, the Lamb of God,
Redeemed our souls from hell.
He crowned with thorns, spit on with scorn,
The Jews have hid themselves.

So God send you all a joyful New Year, a New Year,
So God send you all a joyful New Year.

2. They bound Christ’s body to a tree,
And they wounded Him full sore;
From every wound the blood ran down
Till Christ could bleed no more.
His dying wounds they rent and tore,
All covered with pearly gore.
