Program Notes

An arrangement of the traditional English carol.

Text

Here we come a-wassailing among the leaves so green,
Here we come a-wand’ring, so fair to be seen,
Love and joy come to you, and to you your wassail too,
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year,
And God send you a happy New Year.

We are not daly beggars that beg from door to door,
But we are neighbors’ children whom you have seen before  
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year,
And God send you a happy New Year.

Bring us out a table and spread it with a cloth,
Now bring us out some moldy cheese and some of your Christmas loaf   
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year,
And God send you a happy New Year.
