THE HOLLY (Traditional) Rita MacNeil (with David Blamires & Neil Donell) Now the holly bears a berry as white as the milk And Mary bore Jesus whose wrapped up in silk And Mary bore Jesus Christ, our Saviour for to be And the first tree of the green wood, it was the holly. Holly, holly And the first tree of the green wood, it was the holly. Now the holly bears a berry as green as the grass And Mary bore Jesus who died on the cross And Mary bore Jesus Christ, our Saviour for to be And the first tree of the green wood, it was the holly. Holly, holly And the first tree of the green wood, it was the holly. Now the holly bears a berry as red as the blood And Mary bore Jesus to do sinners good And Mary bore Jesus Christ, our Saviour for to be And the first tree of the green wood, it was the holly. Holly, holly And the first tree of the green wood, it was the holly. Now the holly bears a berry as black as the coal And Mary bore Jesus who died for us all And Mary bore Jesus Christ, our Saviour for to be And the first tree of the green wood, it was the holly. Holly, holly And the first tree of the green wood, it was the holly. NOTES: Lyrics as released by Rita MacNeil 1988 'Now The Bells Ring'.
