111. Sing We Now of Christmas

1. Sing we now of Christmas,
Noel, sing we here!
Hear our grateful praises
to the Babe so dear.

Sing we Noel,
the king is born, Noel!
Sing we now of Christmas,
sing we now Noel!

2. Angels called to shepherds,
"Leave your flocks at rest;
Journey forth to Behtl'hem,
find the Lambkin blest." [Refrain]

3. In the stall they found Him;
Joseph and Mary mild
Seated 'round the manger,
watching the holy Child. [Refrain]

4. From the eastern country
came the kings afar,
Bearing gifts to Bethl'hem,
guided by a star. [Refrain]

5. Gold and myrrh they took there,
gifts of greatest price,
There was ne'er a stable
so like paradise. [Refrain]
