Lyrics

As Joseph was a-walking he heard an Angel sing
This night shall be the birth time of Christ the heavenly king
As Joseph was a-walking he heard an Angel sing
This night shall be the birth time of Christ the heavenly king
He neither shall be borned in housen nor in hall
Nor in the place of paradise but in an ox's stall
He neither shall be clothed in purple nor in pall
But in fair white linen as usen babies all
He neither shall be rocked in silver nor in gold
But in a wooden cradle that rocks upon the mold
He neither shall be christen'd in white wine nor in red
But in the fair spring water with which we were christened
He neither shall be borned in housen nor in hall
Nor in the place of paradise but in an ox's stall
As Joseph was a-walking he heard the angel sing
This night shall be the birth time of Christ the heavenly king
Allelulah
Allelulah
Allelulah
Allelulah
Allelulah
Allelulah
Allelulah
Allelulah
