A different version from here

Maddy Prior: Sing, Sing All Earth
[English trad. (Copper, 1971 / Pickard-Cambridge, 1926), arr. Watts]

Maddy Prior and the Carival Band recorded this carol on their 1997 Christmas tour for their live album Carols At Christmas. Another live recording, from the Maddy Prior, Family & Friends Christmas tour of 1999, was released on the CD Ballads And Candles.


Sing! Sing all earth!
Sing! Sing all earth! Eternal praises sing,
To our Redeemer
To our Redeemer and our heavenly King!
Shepherds arise, be not afraid;
With hasty steps repair
To David's city: see the maid
With her blest Infant there.


For us the saviour came on earth,
For us his life he gave,
To save us from eternal death,
And raise us from the grave.


To Jesus Christ, our glorious King,
Be endless praises given.
Let all on earth his mercies sing,
Who made our peace in heaven!
