Christmas Songs – The Wexford Carol lyrics

Good people all
This Christmas-time
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
Weet 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
