Wassail Song                                      Wassail Song MP3 (1,8 MB)
Tune: "The Wassail Song", English, 17th.cent.   MIDI / Noteworthy Composer / PDF

Here we come a-wassailing among the leaves so green,
Here we go a-wandering, so fair to be seen!
Love and joy come to you, and to you good wassail, too,
All Gods bless you and send you a happy New Year,
All Gods send you a happy New Year!

We are not daily beggars that roam from door to door,
But we're your Heathen neighbors whom you have seen before.
Love and joy come to you, and to you good wassail, too,
All Gods bless you and send you a happy New Year,
All Gods send you a happy New Year!

Gods bless the master of this house, likewise the mistress too,
And all the little children that round the table go!
Love and joy come to you, and to you good wassail, too,
All Gods bless you and send you a happy New Year,
All Gods send you a happy New Year!

Good master and good mistress, while you're sitting by the fire,
Pray think of us poor Heathens who're wandering in the mire!
Love and joy come to you, and to you good wassail, too,
All Gods bless you and send you a happy New Year,
All Gods send you a happy New Year!
