Lyr. Add: A Greeting (Christmas)
Agathe Christie Mallowan
Praise the Yule Log!
Leap, Flames, merrily.
Hail to the Wassail Bowl!
Bubble, Wine, rosily!
In the Manger lies the Child;
Asses, Oxen, braying, lowing,
Cackling Hens and Cocks a'crowing.
Overful the Inn tonight,
Up above a star shines bright,
Shepherds kneel beside their fold,
Wise Men bring their gifts of Gold,
Angels in the sky above
Trumpet forth God's gift of Love.
Waken, children, one and all,
Wake to hear the trumpet call,
Leave your sleeping, 'tis the Day,
Christmas, glorious Christmas Day!
