Here's my transcription for this song by The Young Tradition. It still has one gap and some of the other other lines may have errors. I'd appreciate corrections.

youtube has the song here

March the morning sun (Royston, Wood)

March, march the morning sun
and the dawn wind dancing
to the early tune of small pretty birds
up on the darkness chancing.

Then men and dames give up your beds,
all maids and boys your yawning
to hear the bells ring frosty land
to tell it's Christmas morning.

And some to bake and some to make
and some the                seeking
and lovers to their trusting place
to share their joys and speaking.

So soon around come cakes and ale
and time is for a story
and silent all do gather round
it tell of Jesus' glory.

Then dance my dream to the magic of he bell
from dusk til early dawning
(to find the lads) are ringing still
it's clear St. Stephen's morning.

Wolfgang

after a couple of listens I'm pretty sure it's like this:

March, march the morning sun
and the dawn wind dancing
to the early tune of small pretty birds
up from the dark fields chancing.

Then men and dames give up your beds,
all maids and boys your yawning
to hear the bells ring frosty round
to tell it's Christmas morning.

And some to bake and some to make
and some the gifts go seeking
and lovers to their trysting place
to share their joys unspeaking.

So soon around come cakes and ale
and time is for a story
then silent all who gather round
hear tell of Jesus' glory.

Then dance my dream to the magic of the bow
from dusk 'til early dawning
to find the earth serene and still
this clear St. Stephen's morning.
