The Sussex Carol                              The Sussex Carol - MP3
Tune: English Traditional –                             The Sussex Carol - Sheet Music
first tune no. 24 The Oxford Book of Carols

On Yuletide Eve the folk do sing
To hear the tidings our Disir bring
On Yuletide Eve the folk do sing
To hear the tidings our Disir bring
News of great joy, news of good cheer
At the turning of the year

Why should our folk in Midgard be sad?
Since Frey the Frithful makes us glad
Why should our folk in Midgard be sad?
Since Frey the Frithful makes us glad
Soon from the cold he will set us free
Soon buds will spring from ev’ry tree.

Out from the darkness we’ll have light
So sing our kinsfolk well this night
Out from the darkness we’ll have light
So sing our kinsfolk well this night
“Glory to the Gods and peace to all
Let good will dwell in ev’ry Hall”.
