THIS NEW CHRISTMAS CAROL This new Christmas carrol Let us chearfully sing, To the honor and glory Of our Heavenly King, Who was born of a Virgin, Blessed Mary by name, For poor sinners' redemption To the world here he came. The mighty Jehovah By the prophets foretold, That the sweet babe of Heaven Mortal eyes should behold. Both King, Prince, and Prophet Nay, our Saviour beside, Let his name through all ages Ever be glorified. Now, when Joseph and Mary Was espoused, we find, Having seen her condition, He was grieved in mind Aye, and thought to dismiss her Whom he loved so dear; But an Angel from Heaven Did her innocence clear. He declared in a vision, That a Son she should have. By the Father appointed Fallen mortals to save; And the same should be called Blessed Jesus by name: From the high court of Heaven This ambassador came. Then the righteous man Joseph He believed the news, And the sweet Virgin Mary He did no wise refuse. Thus the blest amongst women, She did bear and bring forth A sweet Prince of Salvation Both in Heaven and Earth. When the days of her travail Did begin to draw nigh, Righteous Joseph and Mary They immediately To the city of David, To be taxed indeed, E'en as Caesar Augustus Had firmly decreed. Being coming to the city, Entertainment they craved, But the inns were so filled They no lodging could have; For the birth of our Saviour, Tho' he was Prince of all, He could have there no place But a poor oxes stall. Now the proud may come hither, And perfectly see The most excellent pattern Of humility; For instead of a cradle, Deckt with ornaments gay, Here the great King of Glory In a manger he lay. As the Shepherds were feeding Of their flocks in the field, The sweet birth of our Saviour Unto them was reveal'd, By blest Angels of Glory, Who those tidings did bring, And directed the Shepherds To their Heavenly King. When the Wise Men discover'd This bright heavenly Star, Then with gold and rich spices Straight they came from afar, In obedience to worship With a heavenly mind, Knowing that he was born For the good of mankind. Let us learn of those sages, Who were wise, to obey; Nay, we find through all ages They have honour'd this day, Ever since our Redeemer's Bless'd nativity, Who was born of a Virgin To set sinners free.
