A Carolling! A Carolling! (Ellacombe) – Organ


A carolling! A carolling!
Sing of the Saviour’s birth;
Of shepherds and of angels,
Of peace on all the Earth.
A carolling! A carolling!
The songs so full of joy.
Sing with the heav’nly choir above
That praised the infant boy.

A carolling! A carolling!
Sing of the guiding star;
Of shepherds and of wise men
Of how they journeyed far.
A carolling! A carolling!
Sing of that glorious day
When God came down to our world,
A baby in the hay.

A carolling! A carolling!
A story of God’s love:
The Christ child in the manger,
Who came from up above.
A carolling! A carolling!
Our song will never end,
Till every person, everywhere,
Knows Jesus Christ as friend.
