SANS DAY CAROL

 

Now the Holly bears a berry as white as the milk,

And Mary bore Jesus, who was wrapped up in silkl

 

And Mary bore Jesus Christ our Saviour for to be,

And the first tree in the green wood, it was the holly, holly, holly

And the first tree in the greenwood it was the holly.

 

 Now the holly bears a berry as green as the grass,

And Mary bore Jesus who died on the cross.

 

Now the holly bears a berry as black as the coal,

And Mary bore Jesus, who died for us all.

 

Now the holly bears a berry, as blood it is red

Then we trust in our Saviour, who rose from the dead.

 

 

This version from the Oxford book of carols
