ALL YOU THAT ARE TO MIRTH INCLINED All you that are to mirth inclin'd Consider well and bear in mind What our good God for us hath done In sending his beloved Son. Chorus And to redeem our souls from thrall, He is the Saviour of us all. Let all your songs and praises be Unto his Heavenly Majesty, And evermore among your mirth Remember Christ our Saviour's birth. Chorus The five and twentieth of December, Good cause have you for to remember, In Bethlehem upon this morn There was our blessed Saviour born. Chorus The night before that happy tide The spotless Virgin, and her guide, Went long time seeking up and down To find them lodging in the town. Chorus And mark how all things came to pass, The inns and lodging so filled was, That they could have no room at all, but in a silly oxes stall. Chorus That night the Virgin Mary mild Was safe delivered of a Child, According unto Heaven's decree Man's sweet salvation for to be. Chorus Near Bethlehem did Shepherds keep Their herds and flocks, and feeding sheep, To whom God's Angels did appear, Which put the Shepherds in great fear. Chorus Prepare and go, the Angel said, To Bethlehem, be not afraid; There shall you see this blessed morn, The princely babe, sweet Jesus, born. Chorus With thankful hearts and joyful mind, The Shepherds went this babe to find, And as the heavenly Angel told, They did our Saviour Christ to behold. Chorus Within a manger was he laid, The Virgin Mary by him stay'd, Attending on the Lord of life, Being both mother, maid, and wife. Chorus Three Eastern Wise men from afar, Directed by a glorious Star, Came boldly on, and made no stay, Until they came where Jesus lay. Chorus And being come unto the place Wherein the blest Messias was, They humbly laid before his feet Their gifts of gold and odours sweet. Chorus See how the Lord of Heaven and Earth Shew'd himself lowly in his birth, A sweet example for mankind, To learn to bear an humble mind. Chorus No costly robes or rich attire Did Jesus Christ our Lord desire, No musick nor sweet harmony, Till glorious Angels came from high. Chorus If choirs of Angels did rejoice, Well may mankind with heart and voice Sing praises to the God of Heaven, That unto us his Son is given.
