The Wexford Carol

Traditional - as performed by Allison Crowe

Good people all, this Christmastime
consider well and bear in mind
what our good God for us has done
in sending His beloved Son.

With Mary holy we should pray
to God with love this Christmas day.
In Bethlehem upon that morn’
there was a blessed Messiah born.

Near Bethlehem did shepherds keep
their flocks of lambs and feeding sheep
to whom God's angels did appear
which put the shepherds in great fear.

"Prepare and go," the angels said,
"To Bethlehem, be not afraid.
For there you'll find this happy morn’
a princely Babe, sweet Jesus born."

With thankful heart and joyful mind
the shepherds went the Babe to find.
And as God's angel had foretold
they did our saviour Christ behold.

Within a manger He was laid
and by his side the Virgin Maid.
As long foretold
there was a blessed Messiah born.
