Melanie Origin: Mary Mild / Bitter Withy / Holy Well (44) History of 'Mary Mild' ? 13 Dec 99


Can anyone give me any history on the song "Mary Mild"? It is a lovely song but the lyrics aren't exactly biblical:

As it fell out on a cold winter day, the drops of rain did fall. Our Savior asked leave of his mother, Mary, if He might go play at ball.

"Go up the hill," His mother said, "and there you will find three jolly children. But let me hear no complaint of You when You come home again...........

Thanks!
