Lyrics

As Joseph was a-walking, he heard an angel sing
“This night shall be bornèd our heavenly King”

“He neither shall be bornèd in housen nor in hall
Nor in the place of Paradise, but in an ox’s stall”

“He neither shall be clothèd in purple nor in pall
But in fair white linen, as usen babies all”

“He neither shall be rockèd in silver nor in gold
But in a wooden cradle that rocks upon the mould”

“He neither shall be christenèd in white wine nor red
But with the fair spring water with which were christenèd”
